Understanding the Dangers of Inhalant Abuse

Inhaling Inhalant Drug

These addictive and deadly substances are found in nearly every home in the world. Unfortunately, they are popular substances for abuse by teens and even pre-teens.

National estimates of inhalant abuse state that more than 6% of eighth graders have abused these substances in the past year. But that is not the most frightening statistic. What is more terrifying is that two-thirds of eighth graders don’t think there is any risk to abusing inhalants once or twice. Four in ten don’t think it is harmful to abuse them regularly.

Educate your children and protect them from organ damage or death.
