Teens using ‘Party drugs’ feed addiction denial
An increase in the use of party drugs is beginning to worry authorities.
The majority of individuals who use party drugs regularly, notably adolescents under the age of 21, don’t believe they have an addiction.
“The majority of teens who use party drugs do not believe they have a problem and normally they are younger than the heroin addicts,” said the president of the Association for the Rehabilitation of Drug Abusers.
The abuse of ketamine and other party drugs has been linked to an array of cognitive difficulties, brain damage, heart failure, delirium and in some cases, death.
Many believe that the underlying problem is the large scale of unawareness amongst the nation's youth, who fail to see the detrimental effects of their drug abuse.
