Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Psychology Behind Substance Abuse. It needs to be at least 1250 words. The paradox is that this evil can never be eradicated from the world completely or majorly by simply forcing the drug abusers to go through any rehabilitation programme for a particular time period assuming they will learn the difference between right and wrong while locked up behind the iron bars. Rather, the crude psychology behind substance abuse needs to be scrutinized and understood well if any substance abuser has to be treated for the maladaptive use of alcohol, prescription medications, cocaine etc. Without caring to observe the psychology behind substance abuse, it is totally impossible to find out why a certain person rushes after a particular drug and if his/her abnormal tendency is linked to domestic violence, stress at work or peer pressure. Myriad psychological factors surface after deep analysis of a substance abuser like striving to experience positive pleasure, psychological reward, protection against harsh realities, and satisfying compulsion or psychological craving for a substance.
