THE DANGERS OF DRUG ABUSE AMONG YOUTH

Date:

Drug abuse is the inappropriate use of substances including alcohol, description medication, or illegal drugs for purposes such as pleasure to feel or perform better in certain situations or to change one’s perception of reality.

The drug is a combination of medicinal substances formulated and prepared by pharmacists for the cure of people’s illness or ailment which has been grossly used and abused by people across the whole section of the society.

Drug abuse is one of the top problems confronting the nations today, especially among the youth. Incidences of drug abuse and related anti-social behavior have tremendously increased in recent years. This has become a matter of concern to the government, parents, teachers, non-governmental organizations and all other relevant agencies. It is more prevalent than parents suspect. The parent does not recognize the extent of drug use and as a result, some young people think they can use drugs with impunity.

Drug abuse in recent times has been the major discussion on the television, radio, and of course, in the dailies. The menace of drug abuse among the people of our country has gotten to an alarming rate and it has become a cankerworm pervading every sector of our economy.

Most mental psychiatric cases today are caused by self-medication. Many young and old people have been in the habit of taken hard drugs not subscribing to them by a doctor or pharmacists, many easily walked into the nearby patent medicines stores owned by stack illiterates to buy drugs, thus abusing the drugs.

It is not a new thing in our society today seeing young children with one deformity or the other. Some of this deformity came as a result of pregnant mothers taken drugs that were not subscribed by a doctor. Most of the expectant mothers do not go for antenatal examinations and treatments, rather, they go to the nearby shops to buy the drug that was not prescribed by the doctor, and thus these innocent children are later born with one deformity or the other.

The deformity we are talking about sometimes results from accidents or through other forms of accidents. Most of the drivers nowadays drive under the influence of hard drugs. Most of them go behind the wheels after taking Indian hemp or sniffing cocaine. The resultant effect of this is nothing but accidents here and there ending in either complete loss of lives or having a serious injury.

Drug abuse had a deliberating effect on both our national psyche and prestige overseas. Nigerians are often subjected to derogatory and shameful intensive searches when they travel abroad. To show the seriousness of this effect, even the Nigerian bishops and clergymen are not accepted from this type of pushing consumption.

            The earlier in one’s life drug abuse begins, the more likely an individual will become addicted. Most substances use in teens and young adults can become part of a pattern of unsafe sex and driving under the influence. Due to availability, teens and young adults may be more likely to abuse dangerous “club drug” which, as part of the general picture of alcohol and drugs being abuse by this demographic, can lead to serious problems including:

  • Addiction
  • Poor judgment
  • Impaired memory
  • Injury due to intoxication
  • Lifelong legal problems,
  • Development of mental health issues
  •  Damage to major organs

 Drug abuse is a major problem in the United States. One of the most significant issues concerning drug abuse is the high risk of developing an addiction. The abuse of the drug can have serious ramifications on a person’s physical health, mental health, and overall wellbeing. Clinically as a substance use disorder, addiction is a recognized condition involving compulsive use of the substance despite negative consequence. Abusing substances create both changes in behavior and in the way brain works, especially in the areas governing judgment and regard. Continuous abusing substances can be a sign of warning that an individual is beginning to lose control over their drug use.

In conclusion, the government should do something about this by enacting a strong law banning sales, consumption, and purchase of these hard drugs. The law should carry capital punishment as its penalty. The problem here is that we are never honest with the law especially when it concerns our ward.  Every person must maintain endorsed prescription notes from the doctor before he or she could buy any drug from the chemists so that they be free from drug abuse.
