We all know by now the affects of drugs on the body.  We’ve read the countless articles on the topic and we’ll know someone who has been impacted by it.  

Drugs are entering a new age and new mixes are coming into the market, especially what they call ‘legal highs’ which causes psychotic episodes and have many side effects.  Small amounts of the drugs can get you immediately addicted to them which causes long term issues for the user.  

What is worrying is that drugs of many kinds have become easily accessible locally and that proves to be a danger, especially to anyone who is vulnerable and has perhaps lost their purpose in life.  If someone feels like they have nothing to live for and they maybe feel like they want to escape the troubles of their life, they will most like turn to stronger drugs, if not already smoking.  

Drugs are not one of the main reasons users get addicted – its the escape from reality that drives the person to take more

Depression and Mental Health are two factors that always come into play which effects emotional, psychological and social well being of the person.  

If your moods are changing constantly, and you’re in need of wanting to talk to someone, get help – don’t leave it to chance.  Putting your life at risk will not get you anywhere.  Seek help immediately using the local resources available to you.  

The issue of drugs won’t go away, but as long as we’re making ourselves aware of the affects of taking the drugs and keeping check on our family members, especially those who leave the family home and start out elsewhere – check up on them.  Look for signs with members of family in your own home – don’t assume they are silent because they don’t want to speak or that is their personality.  Talk to them.
