WHY DO PEOPLE TAKE DRUGS?
People take drugs because they want to change something about their lives.

  • Grieving a death
  • End of a relationship
  • Mental illness
  • Environmental influences
  • Relaxation
  • Self-medication
  • Financial burdens

  • To fit in
  • Curiosity and experimentation

  • Instant Gratification

They think drugs are a solution. But eventually, the drugs become the problem.

Difficult as it may be to face one’s problems, the consequences of drug use are always worse than the problem one is trying to solve with them. The real answer is to get the facts and not to take drugs in the first place.

How Do Drugs Work?

Drugs are essentially poisons. The amount taken determines the effect.

A small amount acts as a stimulant (speeds you up). A greater amount acts as a sedative (slows you down). An even larger amount poisons and can kill.

This is true of any drug. Only the amount needed to achieve the effect differs.

But many drugs have another liability: they directly affect the mind. They can distort the user’s perception of what is happening around him or her. As a result, the person’s actions may be odd, irrational, inappropriate and even destructive.

Drugs block off all sensations, the desirable ones with the unwanted. So, while providing short-term help in the relief of pain, they also wipe out ability and alertness and muddy one’s thinking.

Can Drug addiction be cured?

As with most other chronic diseases, such as diabetes, asthma, or heart disease, treatment for drug addiction generally isn’t a cure. However, addiction is treatable and can be successfully managed.

HAIR DRUG TESTING
 

Need to confirm if someone is a drug user? Hair Drug testing is a process in which a hair sample collected from a donor’s head or body is screened for the use of illicit substances. Hair analysis can accurately detect drugs used up to 90 days prior to the test and has been proven to be five times more effective than urine tests!

How does the Hair Drug test work?
Since the bloodstream carries nourishment to produce new hair, scientists are able to identify the ingestion of drugs of abuse by simply analyzing a hair sample. Using Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) methodology and a variety of mass spectrometry techniques, scientists measure the drug molecules embedded inside the hair shaft. Through this method, which has been approved by multiple accrediting agencies, any chances of external contamination are totally eliminated. In fact, hair testing results cannot be altered through the use of shampoos or any other external contaminants or chemicals.
