National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week: April 2

What are the most addictive drugs? Well, it depends on the person and other factors, but many people believe that some drugs may be particularly addictive. The substances include:
  • Cocaine
  • Nicotine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine (meth)
  • Alcohol
These substances are so addictive that an estimated 964,000 people misused methamphetamine in just 2017 alone. Methamphetamine and other drugs are addictive, but addiction is treatable. Sources www.drugabuse.gov – What is the scope of methamphetamine misuse in the United States?
