|ADDICTION A condition
that happens after a person becomes dependent on a drug and believes that he or she
mentally and physically really wants the drug in his or her life. All the addicted drug
user can think about is the next dose. Sometimes addicted users steal, rob, or hurt others
to get drugs. They often forget about their friends, families, and communities because
overwhelming drug-seeking behaviors take over their lives.
AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) The disease that attacks an individual's immune system, which makes it difficult for his or her body to fight off infections. It is devastating because there is no cure. The virus that attacks the body is known as HIV (Human Immuno-deficiency Virus), and AIDS is the most serious stage of the HIV disease. It is always fatal. One way that people can get AIDS is from sharing dirty needles when they inject drugs like heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine.
DEPRESSANT An addicting and powerful drug that slows you down. Depressants can come from natural and manmade (synthetic) sources.
DRUG DEPENDENCE A condition that happens when a person feels that he/she needs drugs in order to function better. A person can be physically dependent, meaning that his/her body intensely desires the drug. A drug user can be mentally dependent too. This means that the user craves the drug in his/her mind. Drug users become dependent before becoming addicted to drugs.
