The quote by Michael Kuhar (2012, 149) found on Page 40 of your text reads: Opiate drugs are used legitimately in the treatment of pain and are the mainstays in that area. But the same neural systems that alter pain also produce feelings of euphoria and wellbeing, which could lead to abuse and addiction.
How can the use/abuse of depressants be explained by stress, addiction and the central nervous system? Do you agree with this model? Why? Why Not?
