Commonly Abused Drugs
Types of Drug Abuse
Those struggling with drug addiction share some similar challenges but depending on the types of drug(s) they’re using, how much they’re taking, how frequently, and in what combination with other addictive substances, the signs, symptoms and effects could be quite different.
No matter the type of drug, the impact of continued drug abuse and addiction can lead to life-ending or altering problems, overdose, physical complications, psychiatric problems, family turmoil, legal problems, jail, child custody issues, unemployment, etc. The faster someone gets help to end their drug abuse or addiction, the more likely they are to have a chance at a full recovery and a new beginning.
All drugs are not the same, but they can all be deadly especially if combined.
