drugs activate the brains reward systems. The promise of reward is very
intense, causing the individual to crave the drug and to focus his or her activities
around taking the drug. The ability of addictive drugs to strongly activate brain

of consciousness, harming the ability to think or be fully aware of present surroundings.
