Club drugs seem to be all the rage today, especially among young adults. These are drugs that basically got their name from their high popularity at clubs, at bars, and at raves where large groups of people may indulge in them for, “the trip of their life.” Like as is the case with other drugs though, the excitement and enjoyment of these substances are really just a facade. What they may not know about these drugs truly is that some of the drugs are dangerous enough to result in the final trip of their lives due to the drugs’ potentially fatal nature. By final trip is meant death, and this occurrence is all too common for those who take these drugs, and particularly all too common for young adults. This type of overdose is especially hazardous when the drugs are mixed with other substances or with alcohol, which is all too often the case.
Club Drugs are Intense
Some think that the chance of death is the only risk they run when taking these drugs. Not true. Even if the club drug of choice does not lead to sudden death, (which is very likely if the user is careful), some club drugs and the use of them may lead to continued abuse and even addiction too where giving the user an effective treatment plan may be the only way possible to actually return them to a life of continuous sobriety for the duration of their lives.
Drugs hitting the current club scene include but are not limited to LSD, roofies, GHB, Molly, and ecstasy too. Each has its own set of very explicit hazards and severe consequences alike particularly with continued abuse and use of them too.
Best Drug Rehabilitation Can Help
At Best Drug Rehabilitation, we have the knowledge and experience to recommend the best treatment program for anyone struggling with any addiction. Here are some facts you will find interesting about drug abuse today to help you understand our commitment to finding effective treatment for our clients.
- We found that no less than 27.2 percent of high school students admit to having used some form of illicit club drugs. By their senior year, 21% of teens report having used a club drug, and 3% claim to use the drug daily. Although drug abuse is still a major issue among young people and among adults too, preventative methods have been successful at keeping some youth from using harmful substances. The peak of drug use among teens, for instance, was 37% compared with 27% at the most recent survey. So, the problem is going down for some drugs, but going up for others.
- Prescription drug abuse has risen up by more than three-hundred percent among individuals of the 18-25-year-old age range in the last few years alone. The most frequently abused prescription drug is the narcotic Vicodin and its cousin Lortab too, but others are quite prevalent too. This abuse often progresses to OxyContin and heroin abuse if the individual does not address it immediately. Studies have also shown that prescription drugs are now a major gateway drug for party and club drugs. If an individual does not die from abusing prescription drugs, he or she will very often go on to abuse club drugs.
- Substance abuse hits hard in different areas at different times. Currently, prescription drug abuse is the most concerning aspect of drug and alcohol abuse and addiction. This is the curse of the nation right now with these addictions being the most difficult to beat of them all within the eyes of many club drugs coming in at a close second place.
