Drugs don't just hurt the person taking them. Everyone connected to the person can get hurt:

  • husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends
  • teens and children
  • babies
  • other family members and friends

Drug use can hurt people at any age, from any background, rich or poor.

Drug use can cause many problems:

  • fighting and violence inside and outside the home
  • money problems
  • trouble at school
  • trouble at work, losing a job
  • trouble in relationships
  • child abuse, neglect
  • driving crashes
  • arrests and jail

When you or a loved one uses drugs, everyday life can feel out of control.
