Alcohol consumption, for example, has serious depressive effect on it individual’s users more so when it is mixed with other substances like amphetamines. The consequences of such combinations are never good and users may experience reduced symptoms from both substances thereby causing them to continue their habit of abuse.

Doctor Akoury explains that addiction represents a deep and unattainable craving a mental, physical, and spiritual longing. It is however very important to appreciate that the item or behavior being craved is never the issue because the problem is the insatiable need.
