Regardless of the region or country, the effects that can be caused by drug and alcohol abuse are the same. First and foremost, it has bad effects on the health of the individual who is abusing it. The effects on the individuals can either be manifested physiologically or psychologically or can be both.
Furthermore, effects of drug and alcohol abuse can also be manifested through its implications on the relationship of those individuals who use illicit drugs to their family, to their community, to the society and even to the international community. Nonetheless, the risk of having reported many cases of drug and alcohol abuse concerning teenagers is really disquieting given that such abuse of drugs and alcohol could lead to total destruction of the abuser’s mind and body system as well as the peace and order in the society.
Teenagers are said to be more prone to drug addiction and alcoholism. However, it does not suggest that only teenagers have the tendency to abuse drugs and alcohol. High number of adults has also been involved in cases regarding drug and alcohol abuse. Yet there is larger risk if the teenagers would be tolerated and not prevented from engaging on drug addiction and alcoholism.
