Certain substances are highly addictive. Examples of these include:
These substances can lead to addiction because of how they affect the brain. When you use them, they influence neurotransmitters, which are brain chemical messengers. One neurotransmitter in particular they affect is dopamine. Using addictive drugs can cause a flood of dopamine into the brain and block its reuptake, meaning it stays in the brain longer too. The dopamine then activates your brain’s reward centers.
Your brain is wired to continue seeking things that create pleasure. With addictive drugs, that enormous amount of dopamine creates euphoria and pleasurable feelings, so with repeated use, your brain might want to keep seeking the substance out. Eventually, you will develop a tolerance. A tolerance requires larger doses to get the same desired effects. For most people with an addiction, eventually, they’re no longer using the substance to get high. They have to keep using it to feel some sense of normality because their brain depends on the presence of the substance.
Our brains will stop making as much dopamine and other neurotransmitters with repeated exposure to addictive substances. That makes it hard to feel pleasure from anything you normally would, such as a great meal. You may also be dependent at this point, and trying to cut back or stop cold turkey might lead to withdrawal symptoms.
Some people can use addictive substances and never become addicted because it’s a complex process. Risk factors, including childhood experiences, environment, physical and mental health, and genetics, all play a role in addiction.
There’s not one thing, in particular, we can point to and determine it’s the cause of addiction.
The signs of addiction can include:

SPEAK TO SOMEONE WHO GETS IT
Many people think they can stop using drugs or alcohol alone without a professional detox and rehab program, but they relapse. Addiction is a chronic disease that affects your brain’s structure and function. It’s nearly impossible to get a chronic disease under control on your own without treatment.
A rehab center should approach addiction from the disease model to provide the most thorough treatment.
For anyone seeking a San Juan Capistrano addiction treatment center, we encourage you to consider Harbor Detox, located relatively nearby and offering evidence-based treatment.

YOUR BEST CHOICE IN TREATMENT
INSURANCE CAN HELP PAY FOR REHAB
There is a term in addiction treatment—the continuum of care. This approach means that you move through various levels in the treatment process as you’re ready, often beginning with the most intensive. This might mean, first, you complete a medical detox. Then, once drugs and alcohol are out of your system, you move into a residential rehab program.
You are free from outside influences, triggers, and stressors during residential rehab. You’re in a structured environment without chaos that allows you to put all of your attention on your recovery and treatment plan.
Once you complete an inpatient program, you might start outpatient rehab if you’re ready. There are also transitional programs on an outpatient basis, like a partial hospitalization program, which is more like inpatient rehab, but you return home in the evenings.
You might also have an aftercare plan once you leave treatment. This will include referrals to counselors and treatment providers and recommendations to avoid relapse, such as participating in a 12-step program.
If you need something more or less intensive, you can move up or down as is right for you in a continuum of care model.
Your treatment plan may need revisited to keep up with your shifting needs.
