40% of Drug Users Are Trying New Substances

40% of Drug Users Are Trying New Substances

Do you use drugs? Do you someone who does? What substances do they use? Have they been experimenting lately with new drugs and new substances? According to a new study, at least 40% of drug users are trying new substances-with potentially deadly consequences. These new mind-altering drugs can have very unpredictable effects, including "bizarre behavior." Researchers say that the new substances can have “potentially serious consequences” for the health of the users. These are newer drugs that some law enforcement agencies are having a hard time combatting. They're designed to mimic the effects of psychoactive drugs like

•LSD

•Ecstasy

•Marijuana

There are more than 250 of the drugs that fall into this category, and the number is growing. Most of them aren't well-established enough to know what the effects are, and these drugs can have potentially deadly consequences. In some well-publicized cases, the new club drug Molly (which falls into this category of psychoactive drugs) caused a rash of deaths across the country, including in the New York club scene. These dangerous drugs should definitely not be experimented with. They could kill you.

If you're using mind-altering drugs, you should know that you're putting your life at risk. But the good news is that it is possible to get clean. A good program of treatment at a qualified rehab center can help get you off drugs, so you can stay that way.
