The harm that drug addiction can cause a person can be very serious, reaching the point that it can put the lives of people in danger. In spite of this, the problem is not easy to solve. Worst is, there are more victims each day and this situation calls for immediate help. It also demands for more rehab clinics where people can go to and seek help.
