Dopamine is an " award " neurotransmitter, so abuse of drugs could be linked to dopamine.

A drug's action on dopamine is important because (to put it simply) release of dopamine/high levels of dopamine are behavior reinforcing, rewarding ("reward center" of your brain). If something you do (a behavior) has positive/beneficial/enjoyable results, then you are likely to repeat that behavior. This is key to the basis of addiction-the foundation for the subsequently altered brain pathways are being laid out as you habitually use a drug, over and eventually are caught in the vicious cycle of abuse.

The most common symptoms present with an excess of dopamine are those of schizophrenia. These are: paranoid delusions, hallucinations, cognitive problems, excessive stimulation, aggression, etc.. Such symptoms are common also in people that overdose on or abuse stimulants (such as amphetamine, methamphetamine, cathinone derivatives, methylphenidate, etc.). The usual treatment for excess dopamine is administration of antipsychotics (Haldol, Thorazine, etc.), because they block dopamine receptors.

All substances that are considered, "Drugs of abuse," have one thing in common. That is they all activate (to varying degrees) the reward pathway which is a region of the brain that originates in the ventral tengmental area and projects to the nucleus accumbens. Introduction of all abusable substances cause increases (albeit via different mechanisms) of the neurotransmitter dopamine into the nucleus accumbens. Cocaine for example inhibits the reuptake of dopamine from the synaptic cleft resulting in the net effect of increased dopamine in the reward pathway. Amphetamines bind to dopamine receptor sites and act as agonists (activators) of dopaminergic cells. This is an oversimplification nevertheless all substances of abuse share this common mechanism of action; activation of the reward pathway. Hope this answers your question.

There are many things which can cause a dopamine increase in the body, such as: - Biological disposition and sensitivity to dopamine - Heightened stress and anxiety - Medication (such as amphetamines) - Certain foods and drinks - Physical in-health (Parkinson's Disease has been been partially linked) - Mental in-health (Schizophrenia has only been partially linked) - Drug abuse (such as taking Cocaine) Further research is suggested to further understand what can trigger increases in dopamine. The list above is only a general and non-exhaustive list.
