Addiction can result from many factors. For one, some people have a genetic predisposition to addiction. Also, social factors are involved. For example, people who are raised around addiction are more likely to experience it later in life. The physical cause for addiction to drugs is induced Dopamine secretion, which rewards our bodies for taking drugs by making us feel good. However, when the Dopamine receptors are overloaded, our body produces less Dopamine naturally. Therefore, it is now less likely that the person will feel as good naturally. This encourages the addict to take more drugs in order to feel good again.
