  • My uncle, who has been to rehab approx. 5 times, none of which worked. Began using marijuana when he was 14 years old and it has escalated from there. Has used Crack, Cocaine, LSD, Meth, Ecstasy, Prescription Drugs such as Xanex and Oxycotin, Methaqualone (a pill that’s side effects include, euphoria, drowsiness, reduced heart rate, reduced respiration, increased sexual arousal, paresthesias, which is the numbness of the fingers and toes, respiratory depression, slurred speech, headache and sensitivity to light. Essentially an alcoholic blackout in a pill) and Heroin\n\n
  • A chemical substance that affects the process of the mind or body. A substance other than food intended to affect the structure or function of the body\n\n
  • Stimulants \nA substance that temporarily produces an increase of the the body’s activity. \n\nDepressants\nSubstance that temporarily decreases the function or activity of the body\n\nHallucinogens \nChemicals that alter perception, thought and mood.\nname describes that the drug will include hallucinations \n
  • persistent and compulsive dependence on a behavior or substance. Addiction tears families apart and causes pain and suffering for the loved ones of the addict.\n
  • 1. The more you’re around an addictive substance, especially around peers, the more likely you are to use it\n2. A child seeing a parent use a drug usually makes the child feel as though it’s okay. Children also want to be like their parents\n3.

If a relative has been an addict it affects the genetic disposition causing a weak someone’s ability to resist abuse\n5. Most addicts have been reported to not have had a good relationship with their immediate family when they were younger \n6. Individuals who have a psychological issue are more prom to having a drug problem rather then healthy ones\n7. Individuals who have anger issues, or are shy will most have a higher chance of becoming addicted \n
  • Peer pressure is the main issue that leads to deadly habits such as smoking, drinking and drug abuse. Peers are the main influence to get kids to start using drugs. Say things like “everyones doing it, just try it” or “I’ve been doing this forever, nothing bad happens” Not realizing the long term affects on the brain and body.\n
