Now is the Time for You to Know About Substance Abuse

Have you ever heard the expression, “there is no time like the present?”

It’s a really good idea, to try and do things now, rather than put them off until later. The time to learn about substance abuse needs to be sooner rather than later. That is because, waiting to learn about this very important subject, may lead to potentially dire consequences down the road. A person abusing substances can lose their job, their family and even their life, from substance abuse.

Substance abuse problems are not new. What is new, are drugs which are highly addictive and deadly, even at small doses. One such drug is an Opiate called Oxycodone. Oxycodone is an Opiate used for severe pain. It comes in various forms, like Percocet, Percodan, Tylox, Roxycodone and Oxycontin. Believe it or not, one single Oxycontin pill can be enough to kill a person! The best thing to do is to never take this drug, period.

Young people now a days are known to have pill parties, whereby everyone drops various pills into a hat, and then people close their eyes and take pills out of the hat and ingest them. It sounds dangerous, because it is. Never take any pills not prescribed specifically for you.

There are other forms of drugs people abuse, like various powders; for example, Cocaine and Methamphetamine. If one ingests a powder at a party, there is no way to know what is contained in the powder. There have even been cases of folks snorting a powder they thought was Cocaine, only to develop the brain condition called Parkinson’s Disease. (like Michael J. Fox has-but not from drugs).
