Want To Keep Kids Off Drugs? Show Them These Pictures


as a young man, I first began hearing of drugs like meth and heroin. “Not even once” was the slogan I heard everywhere. I stayed away, but that slogan wasn’t enough for some people, young and old alike.

Reading about how meth changed you, or how heroin held you in its addictive clutches and never let go didn’t stop many. I have numerous friends who have battled with the drug for most of their adult lives. It’s sad, and it’s horrifying.

These photos show what we all should have seen in school. From their first arrest to their most recent, it’s clear that body and mind were destroyed by these drugs. This photoset is brought to you by Rehabs, an online community whose mission is to encourage people to get the help they need. These photos show how hard on you drugs can be, and how much of a toll substance abuse can take. It’s important to heed this warning. If you need help, get it now before it’s too late.

The people photographed abused a variety of drugs, including meth, cocaine, heroin, and pain killers. I’m certain these people can tell you that you have to respect your body. Rehab offers all of the necessary tools to help you or someone you love get the help they need. Be warned, these are some intensely disturbing photos.
