"addiction" and "drug problem"

Posted by anon on December 17, 1998, at 11:26:15

What do these words mean exactly? I've heard varying definitions. In one book on psychiatric drugs, the author says that if you've ever in your life taken a prescription drug without a prescription from your doctor, you have a "drug problem." Problem for whom? The DEA, maybe. And "addiction." Are you addicted to a substance if you can stop with no physical withdrawal? And why is "self-medication," in all circumstances, even if done in an educated manner, always "wrong?"

I'm just raising these topics for discussion; there should be philosophical debate.
