Malibu, CA (PressExposure) September 15, 2008 -- The National Institute on Drug Abuse recently affirmed that chronic use of Ecstasy (MDMA) may lead to changes in brain function. Rohypnol, commonly known as a date-rape drug, can incapacitate users and cause amnesia when it is mixed with alcohol. GHB (gamma hydroxybutyrate), an illegally produced drug, that usually shows up in the form of a liquid that has no odor, or color, can lead to seizures and comas, while high doses of Ketamine, or âSpecial Kâ can cause delirium, amnesia, impaired motor function, and potentially fatal respiratory problems. The Drug Enforcement Administration reported that overt effects of Special K can last an hour, but the drug can still affect the body for up to 24 hours. Despite the dangerous side effects, these harmful drugs are popular with club goers, and those attending "rave parties".
Mixed with alcohol, these particular drugs as well as methamphetamine, acid (LSD), and many others, can be quite dangerous, even deadly, not only for teens and young adults, but for people of all ages. Because of this, a lot of parents, siblings and friends are afraid that without drug rehab, substance abuse will permanently harm their loved ones.
