Drugs and alcohol
For most people, drinking responsibly can be part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle. But the inappropriate use of alcohol can damage your health and well-being and have far reaching effects on your personal life.
Substance or drug abuse refers to the over-indulgence in, and dependence upon, a psychoactive drug leading to effects that are detrimental to the individual's physical or mental health, or the welfare of others. Inappropriate use of drugs may lead to addiction or substance dependence.
