Drug addiction. Abstract image of a syringe and hook representing drug addiction. Drug addiction is the compulsive desire to keep taking drugs. This may be to produce the desired effects of the drug or to prevent the ill-effects of withdrawal. Dependence can be psychological (producing cravings) or physical (producing withdrawal symptoms). Addictive drugs range from nicotine and tobacco to cocaine, heroin or amphetamines. Intravenous drug use increases the chances of addiction.
