Abuse is usually characterized by the drug use causing problems in a person's life, such as interfering with their work or relationships. This state of drug use precedes a full-blown physical dependency and addiction, where the drug user needs regular doses of the drug to function. Drug rehab in Memphis sees to it that individuals strongly dependent on drugs "kick" the habit and learn how to live without them.

Addictive drugs can be roughly divided into two categories -- stimulants and depressants, or "uppers" and "downers." Cocaine, crack and meth are stimulants, giving the user an intense feeling of energy and sociability followed by a crash. The opioid drugs are depressants along with sedatives and marijuana.
Hallucinogens exist in an odd category of their own. They are largely not considered to cause a physical dependency, with the possible exception of some of the newer designer street drugs like bath salts. But they can still be abused and a psychological dependency can develop.
