Like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and asthma, addiction has specific risk factors and, if not effectively treated, can lead to other illnesses and even death.
Recent studies have found that the same changes in brain structure and function that can be seen in addiction involving nicotine, alcohol and other drugs appear to occur in relation to other compulsive behaviors such as gambling and certain sexual and food-related disorders, such as bulimia and compulsive eating. If you or someone you love is struggling, now is the time to get help and stop.
