Drugs, when abused, leave lasting impacts on the user’s mind, body, and behavior. Drugs are chemicals that affect the body and brain. Different drugs can have different effects. Some effects of drugs include health consequences that are long-lasting and even permanent. They can even continue after a person has stopped taking the substance.
Triad Family & Children’s Services has listed and discussed these effects to help you learn more about how drug abuse and addiction can affect your body and life in general.
Mental Health Illness Effects
The most obvious effect of untreated mental illness is a steady—and often rapid—decline in mental health. Mental illness will not go away on its own, and the longer it persists, the harder it is to treat.
Financial Negative Effects
You can be certain that financial institutions look at your credit score during the process. Bad credit means possibly being denied a loan or can result in being charged higher interest rates. This is because the amount of interest you pay is based on your level of risk and the current market rate.
