Who's at Risk?
Drugs don’t discriminate; they are equally dangerous to everyone, regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity. Nonetheless, there are specific health risks that different groups of people should pay attention to more than others.
So who is most at risk?
Depending on your personal circumstances, there are many factors that could lead you towards dangerous drugs. It’s important to note that not all drug risks are obvious from the beginning. Some dangers come in the form of side effects that appear over time. Others may interact with existing health conditions and make them worse, without it being clear that a drug is causing the problem.
At every stage of life, it’s important to understand the particular health challenges you face and take steps to limit factors that might make them worse. Failure to do this can lead to serious illness and even death.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled targeted health guidance for some common groups. Learn about the specific health risks and dangerous drugs that affect your groups below:
