Aufgrund dieser Tatsache soll in der folgenden Arbeit aufgezeigt werden, welche Ursachen und Erklärungsansätze für die Entstehung einer Sucht maßgeblich sind und welche Faktoren eine Erkrankung in diesem Kontext begünstigen (können). Bevor jedoch der Fokus der Arbeit auf die Entwicklung und die Gründe einer Sucht gelegt wird, erfolgt zunächst eine Begriffsbestimmung, bei der der Versuch unternommen werden soll, die beiden zentralen Begriffe „Sucht“ und „Abhängigkeit“ voneinander abzugrenzen.
Da eine umfassende Darstellung aller Suchtformen im Rahmen dieser Arbeit nicht geleistet werden kann, beschränkt sich die vorliegende Arbeit auf die stoffgebundenen Süchte am Beispiel illegaler Drogen, an denen exemplarisch Symptome und Wirkungsweisen aufgedeckt werden sollen.
Den Abschluss der Arbeit bildet schließlich das Fazit, in welchem noch einmal die Kernaspekte einer Suchtentwicklung zusammengefasst und insbesondere Schwierigkeiten bei dem Erfassen des Begriffs Sucht herausgearbeitet werden sollen.

Manufacturing Morals demonstrates how college and scholars are uncovered to a process that operates on open-ended directives that require major decision-making at the a part of these concerned, with little overt suggestions from the hierarchy.
