Overview

Every time a person uses drugs, they are building a “pattern of dependency.” That is, they become used to – and dependent upon – the drug’s effects on their mind and body. This psychological or physical “need” for a drug is addiction, and once addicted, quitting the use of that drug can be difficult. For example, nicotine is the addicting drug in tobacco that makes smoking difficult to stop.


This basic guide contains "need to know" information about refusing drugs and where to get help and further information.


Although most people are offered drugs at some point, not all will give in. They will refuse drugs because they understand what drugs can do to the mind and body. They will say “no” because they have the self-confidence to stand up for what they believe is the right choice.
