There are three main factors that control the risks of becoming dependent on drugs. These factors are the type of drug, the personality of the individual and the circumstances in which the drug is taken. Indeed, it could be said that the majority of the adult population have taken alcohol, yet few have become dependent on it. Also, many strong drugs that have been used for medical purposes have not caused the patient to become addicted. However, it can be demonstrated that people who have taken drugs for fun are more likely to become dependent on the drug. The dependence is not always physiological but may remain psychological, although the effects are still essentially the same. Those at greatest risk appear to be personalities that are psychopathic, immature, or otherwise unstable. Psychological dependence is very strong with heroin, morphine, cocaine and amphetamines. Physiological dependence is great with heroin and morphine, but less with amphetamines, barbiturates and alcohol.
