Study Sheds Light on Source of Drug Addicts Risk-Taking Behavior
Written by Administrator   

A study out today provides new insight into how the brains of drug addicts may be wired differently.  The findings, which appear in the journal Psychopharmacology, show that while drug users have very strong motivation to seek out “rewards,” they exhibit an impaired ability to adjust their behavior and are less fulfilled once they have achieved what they desire.  Addressing this disconnect between the craving for a drug and the ability to regulate behavior may be one of the keys to breaking the cycle of addiction.
