One aspect of drug and alcohol addiction is physical dependence. Some drugs carry more risk than others of developing a dependence, such as opioids, alcohol, and benzodiazepines. Physical dependency develops after heavy use of a substance, and is usually first apparent by the presence of a raising tolerance. Tolerance is a term referring to the need for a drug abuser to use more and more of a substance in order to achieve the same high. As tolerance raises, the abuser begins to consume more of the substance, building an even stronger tolerance and dependency. Its this dependency that creates the necessity for a detox.
