Our dopamine receptors are not only the pleasure center of our brains, but also that part of our brains that control our senses of logic and reason. For someone with substance use disorder, drinking alcohol and using drugs reduces the brain’s ability to naturally produce dopamine. “The very part of one’s brain that would say, ‘Hey.
