Abstract
Substance abuse, also known as drug abuse, is the use of a drug in amounts or by methods which are harmful to the individual or others. It refers to the harmful or excessive use of legal or illegal substances, such as alcohol, tobacco, prescription drugs, or illicit drugs. It is a complex and serious issue that can have significant physical, psychological, and social consequences. There are various reasons why individuals may turn to substance abuse. Some factors include peer pressure, curiosity, self-medication for physical or emotional pain, escapism, or a desire for pleasure or relaxation. However, continued and excessive substance use can lead to addiction, where individuals become physically and psychologically dependent on the substance, making it difficult for them to quit or control their consumption.
