Alcoholism and Addiction

Addiction causes long-lasting changes in the in vulnerable individuals. The persistence of these behavioral changes is due to long-lasting changes in gene expression in order to drive these lasting changes in gene expression epigenetic mechanisms play a crucial role. It is an important mechanism used to understand addiction science. Other mechanisms include biochemical mechanism of drug toxicity, Genetic linkage studies, the biochemical assay is also carried for chronic alcoholism. Genetically a person does not inherit a substance abuse they inherit a susceptibility to it. People having susceptibility may not develop a problem of drug or alcohol abuse if they are not exposed to factors of addiction.
