What is the Affect of Drug Misuse?
We are all affected by drink and dug addiction, directly or indirectly.
Often a family member or friend is affected by addiction. Maybe we have sailed into choppy waters ourselves – with alcohol or drugs of some form or another. Some of us have been the victims of drug-related crimes like car theft or robbery where someone is trying to fund their habit.
We are all affected by the cost – through taxes – to society in health care provision, policing and the criminal justice response.
