Drug Facts

The symptoms of substance abuse may be related to its social effects as well as its physical effects. The social effects of substance abuse may include dropping out of school or losing a series of jobs, engaging in fighting and violence in relationships, and legal problems (ranging from driving under the influence to the commission of crimes designed to obtain the money needed to support an expensive drug habit).
Inhalant abuse (commonly called "huffing") is the intentional inhalation of chemical vapors to attain a mental "high" or euphoric effect. A wide variety of substances, including many common household products, are abused by inhalers. The 2000 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse revealed that the primary population of inhalant abusers is the 12 to 17 age group, followed by the 18 to 25 year old population. In 2000, 18% of eighth graders admitted having used inhalants (huffing) at least once in their lifetime. Inhalants produce an effect that may be similar to alcohol intoxication.
Long-term treatment, as long as two years, has yielded the best results for inhalant abusers. This treatment includes identifying the underlying causes of drug use among addicts, teaching them better coping skills, and helping them to sever ties with their drug-abusing peers.
The strongest risk factors for attempted suicide in adults are depression, alcohol abuse, cocaine use, and separation or divorce. The strongest risk factors for attempted suicide in youth are depression, alcohol or other drug use disorder (including binge drinking and sub- stance abuse), and aggressive or disruptive behaviors. The frequency of suicide attempts among substance abusers is five times greater than the frequency among people who do not abuse substances. This is particularly true for alcoholics, because major depression is 50 percent more common among alcoholics than nonalcoholics. Many people drink alcohol or use drugs such as cocaine to reduce feelings of depression. However, drinking and drug use can actually lead to greater anxiety, depression, and thoughts of suicide. Many people recovering from heroin addiction make suicide attempts. Drug abusers often have feelings of being unwell or unhappy. Although these feelings may not last long enough to qualify as major depression, they may nonetheless increase drug abusers' risk of attempting suicide. In addition, there is a relationship between injecting drugs and suicide attempts. Addicts who inject drugs are aware that they are engaging in high-risk behaviors and may be less concerned about their well-being overall. Alcoholics and drug addicts often lose their jobs and have troubled relationships. These problems increase their risk of making a suicide attempt.
