We will investigate the physical impacts both short and long term effects of of substance use. In doing so we will frame an argument for the substance's addictive properties as it relates to both its physically addictive and sociological addictive properties. In doing, so a stronger understanding of how an individual can move through the stages of substance use, to abuse, and finally addiction will be reviewed. We will then address current treatment strategies for the substance and how they address or fail to address both the physical and sociological impacts of its use.
