What is Urge-Peak?

Urge-Peak refers to the peak or highest point of an urge or craving to use drugs or engage in compulsive behaviors. It is part of the Urge-Peak Cycle, which describes a pattern of urges or cravings followed by the peak of drug or behavior effects and then a crash or low period.

The urge peak is characterized by a strong desire to use drugs or engage in compulsive behaviors, often despite the potential negative consequences. Understanding the Urge-Peak can be important for individuals in addiction recovery, as recognizing and managing urges is a key component of sustained recovery.
