In brief: Of course

"drug" is a very generic word.
Antibiotics, antihypertensives, anti-diabetes medications are all drugs. Any substance from outside the body that changes our physiology is a drug. Only a handful of drug classes produce tolerance and withdrawal, which is what makes a drug dependency-producing (i don't use the term "addictive" drug - addiction more involves the person, not the medicine).

In brief: Non addictive drug

Yes there are a multitude of non-addictive drugs.
In fact the overwhelming number of drugs are non-addictive. Concerning your question, there may be a non-addictive drug for the condition you have and it depends on the condition.
