Dangers of Drugs



So, it's not breaking news that illegal drugs are dangerous! This week, we've been exploring why people choose to take them and what can happen when they do.

It is possible to beat drug addiction and in this day and age, there are a vast variety of recovery and rehabilitation programmes to help those in need.
