Drug Abuse Hurts Other People
Drugs don't just hurt the person taking them. Everyone connected to the person can get hurt:
- Husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends
- Teens and children
- Other family members and friends
Drug abuse can hurt people at any age, from any background, rich or poor.
Drug abuse can cause many problems:
- Fighting and violence in and outside the home
- Money problems
- Trouble at school
- Trouble at work, losing a job
- Trouble in relationships
- Child abuse, neglect
- Driving accidents
- Arrests and jail
When you or a loved one abuse drugs, everyday life can feel out of control.
