THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
INTRODUCTION
There are different reasons why people in the Philippines get addicted and various levels
to which people become dependent on drugs. Some people start taking them because of pure
curiosity, others so as to improve their athletic performance or reduce stress and get rid of
depression. It doesnt matter why people start, the main thing here is to get help at the right time
and not to ruin their life and health. When people start taking illegal drugs, with time the way
their brain functions and looks is altered. First of all, drug taking causes elevation of dopamine
level in brain, which results in the feeling of pleasure. Brain remembers this event and wants it
repeated. So, the drug a person takes eventually reaches the significance that other
physiological needs have. As a result, the persons abilities to think clearly, control behavior,
exercise good judgment and feel well without drugs intake becomes affected. This, in its turn,
causes problems in relations with family, friends, at work or in university.
Education about substance abuse is an integral part of helping individuals understand the
many dangers of drug addiction.

Drug education is the planned provision of information, resources, and skills relevant to
living in a world where psychoactive substances are widely available and commonly used for a
variety of both medical and non-medical purposes, some of which may lead to harms such as
overdose, injury, infectious disease (such as HIV or hepatitis C), or addiction. Planning includes
developing strategies for helping children and young people engage with relevant drug-related
issues during opportunistic and brief contacts with them as well as during more structured
sessions. Drug education enables children, youth and adults to develop the knowledge, skills
and attitudes to appreciate the benefits of living healthily (which may or may not include the use
of psychoactive substances), promote responsibility towards the use of drugs and relate these to
their own actions and those of others, both now and in their future lives.
It is extremely important to recognize drug addiction at the right moment, preferably in the

beginning, so as not to spoil social relationships and health. It is necessary to understand that

the sooner the problem will be attended, the better it is for the treatment progress. There are

certain symptoms of drug abuse: when drug is getting people into legal trouble, if because of it

people start neglecting their responsibilities, when they use drugs under dangerous conditions,

and when they cause problems in relationships.

I. BACKGROUND OF STUDY

An addiction is an overpowering urge to abuse a particular substance or engage in a particular

activity. This physical or emotional dependence causes addicts to seek fuel for their addictions

in compulsive ways, often sacrificing some combination of health, safety, relationships,

employment and financial stability.

We have discovered that the nature of addiction is not solely based on free will to use, or an

individual's conscious choice to use, but may have deeper influences. The nature of drug

addiction is three-fold: biological, psychological, and social. Although humans may be

biologically and psychologically predisposed to drug use and addiction, they may often be driven

towards that state by social and cultural influences. To what extent environmental stimuli affect a

person's vulnerability to addiction is unknown and may be varying. However, we cannot ignore

the great impact of environmental and mental stimuli in the progression towards addiction.

Family dysfunction and disruption, low social class rearing, poor parental monitoring, and

rampant social drug-use exposure may greatly contribute to an individual's movement from

substance abuse predisposition to addiction. Drug addiction could be extremely detrimental for

any individual, not only because of the various health problems involved, but also due to the fact

that it abolishes negative emotions, such as pain, which in turn shuts off basic defense

mechanisms against potential threats.

in relation to Republic Act of 9165 to reduce and prevent the massive increase of

IV. THEORETICAL/CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK

The aim of this paper is to describe a conceptual framework of questions which an adequate

theory of drug addiction must attempt to answer. First, a satisfactory definition of addiction is

sought and it is concluded that it is best defined by repeated failures to refrain from drug use

despite prior resolutions to do so. This definition is consistent with views of addiction that see

decision-making, ambivalence and conflict as central features of the addict's behaviour and

experience.
