What are the 4 stages of a person’s addiction process

According to scientists who study addictions, there are phases or stages that a person goes through during the addiction process. We explain what are the 4 stages of a person in the process of addiction, so that you can be aware of their presence in anyone close to you.


This is when the person comes into contact with the drug for the first time, either by falling under the influence of friends or out of mere curiosity. At this stage the sensations are not very pleasant, and can become not only unpleasant but even traumatic.

Among the symptoms or manifestations that occur are: dizziness, nausea, irritated eyes (cigarettes, marijuana); vomiting or heartburn (alcohol). This generates that some do not consume again, so there are few who access to the next stage.

Regular use

In this stage, the person consumes the drug regularly and frequently, putting his or her health at risk. In this stage, the user remains for some time as an occasional user in a stationary way, until he/she gets used to its consumption.

Here he begins to invest money in the drug, he worries about obtaining and acquiring the substance, that is to say, he already begins to invest time, effort and money to find it. The time he will remain in this stage is variable because it depends on the characteristics, conditions and economic possibilities of each consumer.

Risky use

In this phase, the addict needs more frequently the effects that the drug has brought him from the beginning, which he considers as positive; it occurs when real problems appear and he feels that he needs the immediate gratification that the drug generates.

It is a physical dependence that has its origin in the physical need generated by the habit of keeping the drug in the organism, since the cells already recognize the substance and demand it.
There is also a psychological dependence that is evident at certain times of the day or when being in places that bring back memories associated with the consumption of the drug.

Addiction and dependence on drugs

In this phase the user shows a deep need for the substance, because despite knowing the negative consequences it generates, his whole life begins to revolve around consumption; in this phase the impulsive and uncontrolled action of the addict predominates.

This need is manifested in their periodic, maintained and sustained use because they try to avoid the psychic and physical effects generated by the withdrawal syndrome, so the drug and the acts they perform to obtain it become the central axis of their life.

They go to the extreme of abandoning their different work, social and family activities to maintain their connection with the drug in a unique and exclusive way; preferring to stop eating in order to invest their money in the purchase of drugs.
