Drugs are destroying my friends

Omg 3 people I know have now been arrested in connection with meth. The latest one friday night. I used to hang with this group of people that were really nice but some of them started getting caught up in stuff that a couple of us weren't comfortable with and now we have found out that several have been busted. I just can't get over how many people I know from highschool now that are getting caught with some pretty bad stuff. Is it just my town that young people are getting into so much trouble or is this happening in other towns too?

Hi! Its not new that happen with you in your town, its the common problem with every town and country. Drugs addition can destroy everything, It stuck your mind and you are not able to think and distinguish that what is the difference between right and wrong.

Unfortunately, drug addiction is a problem that happens in every single city in this country, and it can happen to anyone. I am sorry to hear that your friends have fallen in that path, however, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. amd help is available everywhere. Now, you can help them by encouraging and supporting them in the their journey to recovery. Drug and alcohol counseling

My town in a small little state had a newspaper article about drug abuse and overdoses.  Alot of people have died since the begining of this year due to overdose.  Our state declares this is an epidemic.  Our state is the only state right now that has a program that introduces NARCAN. NARCAN is a drug that can REVERSE overdose.  So if you carry a vial and one of your friends has overdosed...you administer the drug and it saves thier life.  I suggest if you want to start saving lives in your area that you talk to whomever is responsible for the city?  The Mayor?  I dont' know..but get NARCAN in your state....you can't stop your friends from using...it is an addiction...they are going to go thru whatever they need to.....maybe even death...before they quit.  Its good that you are not using and have the empathy for them.  Tell them about NARCAN...I am not a salesperson...but a MOM who has an addicted son who is dying everyday.....I am going to my local pharmacy to get NARCAN for him to have in his glovebox for him or his friends in the event of an overdose.

Drugs are destroying the lives of many children and youth. Drugs are also taken by athletes in order to enhance their performance but it is illegal to take drugs for performing better. Therefore, it has now become essential to stop the use of drugs. Awareness and counselling are very much needed in this direction.
