Food abuse disorders
Food is abused only when it is taken above and beyond any obvious physiological need. Current evidence suggests significant overlap in the brain circuitry relevant to foraging for food and foraging for drugs of abuse.
The case of food (often sweets and lipids) underlines an important principle: substance abuse does not involve the kinds of physiological dependence that have been assumed in the case of addiction.
The concept of habit is central to the topic of substance abuse. The consequences most obviously associated with substance abuse are addiction and obesity.
