Analyze the effects of Angels substance abuse and addiction on his life, including the impact on the following:His marriageHi

As referenced in the National Institute on Drug Abuse’s Principles of Effective Treatment, “Addiction is a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior. Drugs of abuse alter the brain’s structure and function, resulting in changes that persist long after drug use has ceased. This may explain why drug abusers are at risk for relapse even after long periods of abstinence and despite the potentially devastating consequences.”

In diverse populations, with justice-involved individuals, these effects can prove challenging to address. It is important to examine the effects of substance abuse and addiction on these populations.
