Addiction (addiction) is a condition in which a person naturally suffers from a weakness of the will to control the repetition of his actions due to psychological reasons or the use of chemical substances, although the weakness of the will is not a disease, but due to the complications that have occurred on the person's central nervous system, it is assumed as a disease. and this disease causes the repetition of that behavior by disrupting control over the behavior-reward system. The disease of addiction disrupts the neural circuits related to the reward, motivation, and memory systems in the brain, and the disruption of these systems in the brain causes biological, physiological, social, and mental complications. Investigation of addiction as a psychological, social, and economic complication is done from the perspective of medical sciences, psychology, and sociology as well as from the perspectives of philosophy, law, ethics and religion.
