The difference between addicting drugs and other habit froming drugs is clear in all cases.Some non-addicting drugs,as well as the addicting drugs,causes a strong psychological desire that may make a drug habit as hard to break as physical dependence does.In addiction,many non-addicting drug produce a tolerance in regular users.For such reason,many experts use the term ''drug dependence'' rather than ''addiction''.

How a drug addict can be treated

An addict may withdraw from using a drug slightly decreasing his daily doses over a period of weeks.Gradual withdrawal reduces the severity of withdrawal illness.But even after an addict has withdrawn completely,he feels irritable and restless for weeks or months.Some of his desire for the drug may remains for months or years.Many people who have withdrawn eventually return to drugs and to readdiction.They do so partly because they have not solved the problem that first led them to drugs:

Some physician's who treat addict's have not learned to live with other people and to respect society's rules.Many group have been formed to help addict to adjust to society.

Physician's use drugs to treat some cases of addiction.for example,they may give heroin addict's a narcotic called ''methadone'' methadone develop physical dependence,but it satisfies the body's desire for heroin.methadone users can live almost normal lives.other drugs called ''narcotic antagonists'',block the pleasant effects of heroin and prevent it from causing additional dependence.A drug called ''antabuse'' is used to treat alcoholism.It makes a person sick if he drinks an alcohol beverage.
