Illicit Drugs & Treatment

Illicit drugs are often used as a tool to cope with negative emotions or to alleviate the effects of past traumas. They are often toxic and can cause serious harm. Illicit drugs include cocaine, ICE, heroin, hallucinogens and marijuana.

Illicit Drugs Addiction

Overview

Many drug addictions and dependencies often develop as an attempt to self-medicate physical and psychological pain and distress.

These methods of coping can develop into compulsive, harmful behaviours of drug use with very serious physical and mental health consequences. Both prescription medication and illicit drug addictions can be fatal if left unmanaged.
