In brief: A lot
Besides acting like a poison that we somehow can't stop taking, it creates action in nerve cells that's responsible for making us feel something we want to feel (or avoid what we don't want to feel.
When we stop the drug, we have a hard time replacing the sensation we were looking for naturally. Often it hurts so much that we go back.With help we can get deal with our feelings naturally again.
