Drug abuse refers to the excessive and illegal consumption of drugs that are harmful to the health of an individual. It can be defined as the persistent use of a substance despite its detrimental effects on physical, emotional, and social wellbeing. Drug abuse can have serious and long-term consequences, including addiction, overdose, physical and mental health problems, and social problems such as unemployment, crime, and homelessness. Commonly abused drugs include alcohol, opioids, cannabis, cocaine, and methamphetamine. Treatment for drug abuse typically involves a combination of medication, therapy, and support groups. Prevention efforts include education, awareness campaigns, and policies to reduce availability and accessibility of drugs. In today’s world, there are a lot of kids and young teens involved in drug abuse due to varied reasons with the root cause being from a broken family or from a family that has no love. Drug abuse should be taught in schools and colleges. We also see the varied implementation taken by the institutions as they keep a counsellor to deal with students under such.
