Why do we take drugs? From the drug-reinforcement theory to a novel concept of drug instrumentalization
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 34 (6):322 (2011)
AbstractThe drug-reinforcement theory explains why humans get engaged in drug taking behavior. This theory posits that drugs of abuse serve as biological rewards by activating the reinforcement system. Although from a psychological and neurobiological perspective this theory is extremely helpful, it does not tell us about the drug-taking motives and motivation of an individual. The definition of drug instrumentalization goals will improve our understanding of individual drug-taking profiles
