Neuropsychology and Addiction

Addiction is a chronic condition in which a person engages in use of a substance or in a behaviour for which the rewarding effects provide an enthralling incentive to repeatedly pursue the same behaviour despite detrimental consequences. Addiction may implicate the use of substances such as alcohol, inhalants, opioids, cocaine, nicotine, and others, or behavioural addiction such as gambling; there is scientific evidence that the addictive substances and behaviours share a key neurobiological feature—they intensely activate brain pathways of reward and reinforcement, many of which involve the neurotransmitter dopamine. When someone experiences addiction, they cannot control how they use a substance or partake in an activity, and they become captivated with it to deal with daily life.

The prevalence of substance use disorders is highest across the United States and Eastern Europe, occurring in 5-6% of the population. It concludes that around 1-in-20 suffers from substance dependency. Across Cental and Western Europe, the Americas and Oceania, this prevalence is often ranges from 2-5%.Over Asia, the Middle East and Africa this prevalence is often lower at 1-2%. If gender differences in substance use disorders is compared it is found that in every country the prevalence is greater in men than women. It is calculable that globally, around 164 million people had an alcohol or drug use disorder in 2016. Worldwide around 68% (111 million) of those with a substance use disorder were male. Annually, addiction to alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs, and prescription opioids costs the U.S. economy upward of $740 billion in treatment prices, lost work, and also the effects of crime.
