Heroin use has quickly become an epidemic in the United States, and hugely impacts individuals from a variety of backgrounds. Users can get hooked after just a single use, and continue to seek the euphoric high that heroin provides. Rates of overdose are incredibly high, as heroin is often cut with other unknown substances that can cause heart and other organ failure. Heroin is one of the most dangerous drugs on the street today, but many users are unable to comprehend the risk they’re taking until it’s too late.
Crack, the most potent and addictive form of cocaine, is used by millions of Americans. Users experience an intense and energetic high in the beginning, but quickly crash and often suffer from symptoms of depression, typically leading to craving another high. This vicious cycle can cause serious physical health problems, and can also lead to binge usage, which can result in violent and hallucinogenic episodes. Crack cocaine can quickly change someone you love into someone you no longer recognize.
Methamphetamine can cause a rapid and astonishing deterioration of its victims. Users typically binge use meth, which can lead to the complete abandonment of all self-care. Individuals forget to eat, have no interest in sleep, and suffer from severe weight loss and oral decay as a result. Meth is typically made in makeshift home laboratories using common household chemicals. While meth’s ingredients are fairly commonplace, the combination process is incredibly dangerous, and users who take the risk to make their own product can easily lose their lives because of chemical explosions. While meth use can take a terrible toll on the body, often, trying to quit can be even more taxing. Many users suffer from hallucinations, insomnia, and other cognitive difficulties after trying to stop. Support for those addicted to methamphetamine is essential for sustained sobriety.
Cocaine is a powerful stimulant that can result in an intense and alert high. Many users often crash and experience depression and exhaustion. These two opposite effects can lead to malnutrition, cardiac problems, and a continuous lapse in judgment. Cocaine is a popular drug, and the constant demand from U.S. users continues to fuel dangerous cartels. Cocaine use can turn a beloved friend or family member into an anxious and irritable addict who’s main focus is the next high.
Marijuana is becoming more and more common as more states continue to legalize its use. While marijuana can provide some benefit in medicinal arenas, the continued use of this drug without medical need can cause severe psychological dependence. Marijuana addiction may not cause withdrawals as intense as with drugs like heroin, but it can significantly impact a user’s life and motivation. Individuals may suffer from irritability, increased appetite, sleeplessness, and general lack of interest in participating in daily life, which can be debilitating. Many individuals may need help to end a marijuana habit, regardless of its increasingly more acceptable social status.
Alcohol, while a very commonly abused substance, can be very difficult to quit. Alcoholics, in order to recover, must learn to function in constantly tempting environments. It’s difficult to attend a family function or even a workplace holiday party without being offered a drink. Relapse is common, and tapered sobriety is essential to counteract the potentially lethal effects of sudden withdrawal. Addicts often need support to attain sobriety, which is essential to avoiding severe brain and other organ damage.
Prescription drug abusers often develop an addiction after utilizing their drug of choice per a recommendation from a medical professional. Unfortunately, what was supposed to be a short-term solution becomes a long-term dependence. Opioids, like Fentanyl, Vicodin, Percocet, OxyContin, Methadone, Suboxone, and Morphine are usually prescribed to manage pain. They can quickly become addictive, and many of those addicted utilize them to numb both physical and psychological pain. Benzodiazepines, like Valium and Xanax, are typically prescribed for acute anxiety. Commonly known as Benzos, these medications can sedate users and create a state of deep relaxation. While there are medical values to these medications when used as prescribed, abuse is common and can create a host of problems including cardiac failure, seizures, and hallucinations. These prescription medications can be so powerful that users may have little interest in anything other than getting their hands on more pills.
