Excerpt
INTRODUCTION In its seventh report, the WHO Expert Committee on Addiction-Producing Drugs (1957) defined addiction as follows : Drug addiction is a state of periodic or chronic inrosication produced by the repeated consunlption of a drug (natralo r synthetic). Its characteristics include: (1) an overpowering desire or need (con~pulsion) to continue taking the drug and to obtain it by any means; (2) a tendency to increase the dose; (3) a psychic (psychological) and generally a physical de~endence on the effects of the drug: The purpose of this definition nias to aid in the characterization of substances which have been or should be subjected to international narcotics control. Some of the characteristics in the definition, the first and last particularly, are demonstrable only through prolonged experience and are, in part at least, based upon impressions rather than upon quantitative data: tolerance and physical dependence can be measured quantitatively.
