For people who take them, illegal drugs can be a serious problem. They're responsible for between 1,300 and 1,400 deaths a year in Britain. But that's not the end of the damage that drugs do. They also wreck thousands of relationships, families, and careers.

Drug abuse has an impact on job productivity and attendance, possibly putting your job in jeopardy.

We all know to 'Say No'. But what are the reasons that people do take drugs. For young people it may simply be peer pressure. These youngsters are often not fully aware of the implications of their actions. Young people believe that they are immortal! For others it could be an escape for either a lonely or depressed person or maybe someone who is experiencing chronic pain. At Crawley Wellbeing we believe there is a need for understanding and support for people to find a different way to deal with their underlying problem in addition to coming off the drugs they take.

Some facts:

As most drugs are illegal there is no control as to what goes into them.


If you think you are having a serious negative reaction soon after taking a drug go straight to A&E at your nearest hospital.

The disorder of addiction involves the progression of acute drug use to the development of drug-seeking behaviour, the vulnerability to relapse, and the decreased, slowed ability to respond to naturally rewarding stimuli.

If you have never been tempted to 'have a go' you are a very wise person. Don't think that just the once will not have a detrimental affect. The first time could be the last time or at least the start of a very damaging path to destruction.

The following can be signs that someone is taking drugs:
Irritability, anger, hostility, fatigue, agitation, anxiety, depression, psychosis (seeing or hearing things that are not there), lack of coordination, difficulty concentrating, declining grades, secrecy.

If you are worried or concerned that someone you know is taking drugs you can contact the government funded organisation 'Talk to Frank' who are available to talk to 24 hours a day. They offer complete confidentiality and do not require you to give 'real names'.
