“Addiction is a disease — a treatable disease — and it needs to be understood,” says Dr. Nora Volkow.
Addiction is now understood to be a brain disease because scientific research has shown that alcohol and other drugs (and other addictions) can change brain structure and function. Advances in brain imaging science make it possible to see inside the brain of an addicted person and pinpoint the parts of the brain affected by drugs of abuse — providing knowledge that will enable the development of new approaches to prevention and treatment. – (Source: The Science of Addiction)
