Chemical dependency is described as being when a person feels compelled to drink alcohol or take drugs, even when it has it negative consequences on their health, relationships, social life and more.
People who use drugs or alcohol on a regular basis are likely to quickly develop a tolerance to it. This results in a vicious circle, where the individual has to take more of the substance to achieve the same effects.
