People of any age, sex or economic status can become addicted to a drug. However, certain factors can affect the likelihood of your developing an addiction easily :

  • Family history of addiction. If you have a blood relative, such as a parent or sibling, with alcohol or drug problems, you're at greater risk of developing a drug addiction.
  • Having another psychological problem. If you have a psychological or psychiatric problem, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder, you're more likely to become dependent on drugs or alcohol.
  • Lack of family involvement. A lack of attachment with your parents may increase the risk of addiction, as can a lack of parental supervision.
  • Taking a highly addictive drug. Some drugs, such as heroin and cocaine, cause addiction faster than others.
  • Method of Administration. Smoking a drug or injecting it into a vein increases its addictive potential.
