A drug addiction is often accompanied by co-existing mental conditions
or emotional trauma, and pinpointing these risk factors and triggers can
be essential for effective treatment in an
addiction recovery program.
In this video, common risk factors for substance abuse and addiction are
discussed. There are three basic types of risk factors—biological,
psychological, and social. Biological factors may be inherited from family
members who also suffer from addiction. Psychological conditions and social
pressure may also encourage substance abuse.
Regardless of the causes of your addiction,
