We live in a culture that is filled with addiction. Many of them fill the news weekly and we are very familiar with them. Others are still there, but are flying under the radar. In part one of this two part series we will list many addictions and then cover what it is, what it does to your brain and body, and more. We will be covering in more detail opioid addiction, and also go into the various other drugs that are prevalent today. This will include prescription drugs as well as over the counter and what they were created to be used for and what overdosing or using them without a prescription does to you. Some information on self care follows. More next week on other interesting addictions.
