Substance Use Disorders

What is a substance use disorder?

Substance use disorders are medical conditions that are caused by repeated and frequent misuse of substances that produce a substance illness affecting the body and mind. It can be one substance or multiple substances that are involved in the addictive disorder. We call more severe substance use disorders an addiction.

The impairments that are experienced by the individual that is ingesting the substance can affect a person’s health, and social functioning, and impair the control over the substance use. When determining the severity of the problem a person is often made by assessing a diagnosis by qualified health professionals.

The qualified health professional will utilize cognitive, behavioral, and psychological assessments to determine the range of the severity of the substance use disorder. The range can be mild, moderate, or severe and most substance use disorders will develop gradually over time with repeated misuse of an addictive substance.

Substance Use Disorder & The Brain

The newest research is indicating that substance use disorders are impacting the brain circuits that are responsible for governing the brain’s reward system. It is affecting the ability of the person addicted to the substance to associate cues to trigger a desire to seek out the substance. The individual is determined to satisfy a desire for more of the substance. An individual will seek out a reward and repeat the process repeatedly.

This process creates brain stress and affects the decision-making and self-control portions of the brain. Several factors will influence the process and development of a substance use disorder. This will include the type of substance, the genetic vulnerability of the individual, amount, frequency, and duration of the misuse of the substance.
