1. Nucleus Accumbens (Septi) The NAc was discovered by Dr. Robert Olds and Dr. Robert Heath in the 1950s and serves as a powerful motivator (reinforcer) for normal survival activities. When psychoactive drugs are used, the NAc becomes stimulated, hijacking its functions. The longer someone uses, the stronger the do-it-again message becomes. The brain reacts in a certain way, not because of a bad environment, but because of the way the brain is designed. The effect of the alteration in the brain chemistry has to do with the reaction to the drug itself as well as the anticipation of using.

The increase in neural alterations results in heightened sensitivity to a drug which increases the risk of relapse even after use stops. There are a number of theories on ways psychoactive drugs disrupt the on/off switches of the reward/control pathway and the satiation circuits of the brain: • there is no satiation point, • the on/off switches are ignored or overridden • psychoactive substances disrupt communication between the two brains • the fasciculus retroflexus which communicates from the new brain to the old brain is damaged preventing stop messages from reaching the old brain.
