Drugs - Avoid Risks

Take steps to be safe.

Drug use is a factor in many car crashes, falls, burns, drownings, suicides, homicides, sexual assaults and transfers of sexually transmitted infections. If you choose to use drugs, reduce your risk.

Drug use, in both single and repetitive forms, has a significant effect on how people function and perceive the world. It is very common for people to struggle to understand just how much and how strongly their drug use has or is influencing their function. A drug’s effect varies from person to person, depending on a variety of factors, including:

  • How much you use
  • How often you use
  • Type of drug you use
  • Your age
  • Your gender
  • Your health status
  • Your mental health status
  • Your family support system
  • Your family history
