It Doesn’t Matter What They’re Called

Drugs have many names. Part of the reason for that is because the people who use them often want to hide what they’re doing. The answer to why they might want to do that is no secret: drugs can be illegal, harmful, and addictive. If you or a loved one might be struggling with problematic substance use, don’t get lost in the particulars. Get help now. Contact a treatment provider to take the next step.
