What is drug abuse Continuum
- FireflyLv 41 decade agoFavorite Answer
Just changing from one drug to another. It is when you take one drug, and when you lose ability of obtaining it, you gain access to another. Thus continuing the drug abuse, only with a different drug.
Some have conscience issues and will use alcohol and or drugs to ease it all. And if the beer isn't around, where is the pot ?
This is where the argument of pot leading to bigger drugs comes into play, it is said that you get into this continuum.

It's when they give a herion addict Methadone in order to get them off the herion & they then start abusing the Methadone! That's just ONE example. Then there's ping-ponging your addictions from one thing to another. Drugs to sex. Sex to food. Food to shopping. Shopping to gambling. Gambling to alcohol. Alcohol to anti-depressants (which is actually BACK to drugs!).
