Alcohol is often used as a coping mechanism, but too much of it can lead to the opposite effect.
Problems can include severe liver damage, high blood pressure, impotence, depression, short-term memory loss, and a host of other problems.
They generally have a calming effect on your brain and because it is an effective drug, it is notoriously difficult to get over in the same way as alcohol.
The withdrawal process needs to be managed sensibly as benzodiazepine cannot be immediately stopped without consequences, which is why you should call experts such as ourselves to help you get over them.
THC is a part of cannabis and this goes to the brain and stimulates the pleasure centres, which leads to addiction.
Although often seen as a ‘safe’ drug, users can experience anxiety and paranoia, while the fact that it contains carbon monoxide can cause problems for your lungs and heart.
Considered one of the worst drugs on the market, people feel a euphoric high when taking coke or blow that the user feels can only be replicated by taking more cocaine.
This high combines with a crash effect when the drug wears off, which leads to fatigue and depression. The effects of cocaine can begin even after the first use and can lead to all manner of problems. Professional help is required to get over this drug.
It is used to treat pain that doesn’t respond to painkillers but it can cause symptoms such as high blood pressure, loss of appetite, confusion, nausea, constipation, and other symptoms.
Heroin & Opiates
There are multiple side effects including lightheadedness, sweating, and difficulty in breathing. Users also build up tolerance to the drug, which means what is fine for one person can kill another. The withdrawal process can also produce serious side effects.
Our innovative treatment can get your life back on track as we use a variety of different therapies to help you.
Effects can vary a lot and the dangers are becoming more apparent as time goes by, which is why it is now illegal.
The risk is increased when combined with alcohol so to find out more about the potential effects this drug could have on you, call us now.
