Frequently asked questions

What is addiction?

Addiction is a disease in the brainstem area of the brain, the oldest part of the brain in terms of developmental history.

Why is everything related to the drug important? Why do we feel pleasure when consuming drugs?

Our brain comprises a pleasure center which is part of the so-called limbic system. When I feel pleasure, I learn more easily, enjoy cooking more, etc.
Drugs reduce the stimulus threshold of the pleasure center so that not only the drug but every experience under the influence of drugs is great. The same process takes place when we fall in love: Everything that the significant other does is wonderful. Everything that we experience while being in love is wonderful.
That is why we see everything through rose-colored glasses and barely feel pain and reluctance. Even dirt and disgustingness is borne without complaint as the readiness for pleasure is much higher.

What are the most common symptoms of an addictive disorder?

Craving for drugs, immediate satisfaction, increased desire, steady increase of the dose, comedown, withdrawal, loss of presence, addictive drug becomes purpose in life, narrowing of interests, loss of quality of life, concentration on the purchase and use of drugs.
Friends, family, hobbies... Everything is subordinated to the use of drugs.
During withdrawal, pain, shivering, freezing, anxiety and the unmanageable urge to use drugs set in.

Why can't I just stop?

The neurotransmitters form a neuronal network in the brain which develops a complete life of its own and creates its own control.
This control is beyond our willpower.
The will and the personality say "I want to get out! I want to stop! I’m losing..."
The neuronal network independently controls the search for and the use of drugs.
