Alcohol & Other Drugs

Drug and alcohol use is a part of our society and culture. However, their use and misuse can lead to many unintended social and health consequences.

Although the use of these drugs can pose a number of physical harms, these drugs mainly affect the functioning of the nervous system and the way a person thinks, feels or acts. Substance abuse can lead to physical dependence and addiction.
