Drug addiction is a complex illness defined by intense and, possibly uncontrollable drug craving, along with drug seeking behavior and use that may continue even in the face of devastating outcomes. Treatment varies depending on the type of addiction and the needs of the individual. Tailoring treatment, interventions, and services to a person’s specific problems and needs is important to aid the individual in returning to functioning in their personal life, job, and society. Medications are an important element of treatment for many people, especially when combined with other tools such as counseling and behavioral therapies.
