Drugs and young people

If your child is taking drugs, you may notice changes in their behaviour, such as sudden mood swings, bad temper and aggressiveness, loss of appetite etc. The dangers they face are from accidents while intoxicated, accidental overdose or becoming addicted. Drugs also have side-effects which include hallucinations, mental and emotional disorders, infections, sores, blood poisoning, and other illnesses.

Drugs can also be fatal.


Found in products like aerosols, glue, lighter fuel, paint and petrol. When their vapours are inhaled, they can depress breathing and heart rate, and can cause disorientation and unconsciousness, similar affects to alcohol.

Solvent abuse can cause death through suffocation, or from fright or exertion through the effect it has on the heart.
