The abuse of illegal drugs, prescription drugs, and alcohol can lead to devastating and heartbreaking consequences as well as addiction. Many of our young people are experimenting with substance use and don't realize the risks they're taking by doing so. The younger a person is when they start using drugs, alcohol or other substances the greater their chances are of becoming addicted. Today not only are street drugs like cocaine, meth, heroin, and marijuana being used by people to get high but prescription drugs are abused for the same reasons. Many prescription medications when misused are just as dangerous and addictive as street drugs but most young people don't realize that and painkillers and antidepressants are becoming a common drug of abuse throughout the United States.

Addiction is a chronic disease that's treatable and preventable in most cases. Some people do become dependent on prescription medications that have been prescribed by their physician to manage pain and other health problems. But today teens, young adults and older adults are misusing prescription drugs for non-medical reasons and are risking addiction and serious health problems by doing so.
