Once drugs are seen as a way to cope, it’s not long before addiction sets in and the nightmare begins – both for addicts, and their families.
(PRWEB) December 23, 2013
Parents who don’t know the answer to the question “who is Molly?” should check out the new blog post by Per Wickstrom, which shines a light on a dangerous new club drug that is believed to have caused the deaths of four young people this year and hospitalized dozens of others.
As the blog post explains, Molly is a reinvented powder form of the drug Ecstasy (a.k.a. “E”, “X” or “XTC”), which has been in circulation since the 1990s. Many young people are persuaded to experiment with Molly because they’re told it’s safer than Ecstasy. However, the opposite is the case; especially when Molly is mixed (“cut”) with other drugs. Dangerous side effects include: seizures, fever, escalated heart date, hypothermia insomnia, and other adverse reactions. What’s more, Molly has been designated by the Controlled Substance Act as a “Schedule I” drug, due to its high potential for abuse.
“Being young today is so much harder than it was when I was a kid,” commented Per Wickstrom. “With social media and so much pressure to fit in, many young people are turning to drugs like Molly to feel good. However, the road they’re on is one that absolutely doesn’t lead to a desired destination. Once drugs are seen as a way to cope, it’s not long before addiction sets in and the nightmare begins – both for addicts, and their families.”
The blog post concludes by reminding families that residential drug rehabilitation programs can help young people break free of addiction, and reclaim their lives and potential. They not only get the qualified medical care they need, but they forge healthy relationships with staff and other people on the road to recovery that can last a lifetime.
