Drugs are bad to a human. Some people are able to use recreational or prescription drugs without ever experiencing negative consequences or addiction. For many others, substance abuse can cause problems at work, school, home, and in relationships. You feel isolated, helpless or ashamed.
The important thing is that if you are worried about your own or a family member's drug use, help is available to everyone. Learning about the nature of drug abuse and addiction: how it develops, what it looks like, and why it can have such a powerful hold, will give you a better understanding.
People use mandrax, glue, or cocaine. Then there is the problem of people smoking their drugs - they do not sleep at their homes because of this, they do not learn, they are lost, and many become mentally disabled because of this drug.
They are causing crime in the communities because of this substance abuse – raping and robbing people in the street. It is a problem that needs to be dealt with.
