    Drug abuse could be many things in definition.

    The main one is use of a drug for no reason other than the affects of the drug.

    Another is overuse of a drug that is prescribed by taking more than prescribed.

    Habitual use of drugs not needed for therapeutic purposes (e.g., such as solely to alter one's mood, affect, or state of consciousness) or to affect a body function unnecessarily (e.g., laxative abuse); nonmedical use of drugs.
