Different substances will have different impacts on the body and the way it functions. The severity of side effects varies depending on factors such as amount used, the frequency of use, the potency of the substance, and whether or not it is mixed with another substance. Overall, drug and alcohol use can impair motor functions, decision-making, and problem-solving abilities, as well as reduce inhibitions. Some substances can produce additional side effects that may be unique. Over time, diseases and disorders like psychosis and hepatitis can also take hold of the body as well.
Healing the Brain
Because drugs have such powerful effects on the brain, it is important that steps be taken to counteract the damage. One of the best ways to maintain a healthy brain is to get an appropriate amount of sleep. Sleeping helps the brain to flush harmful elements, and ‘reset’ the brain little by little, so you can feel more refreshed. More serious disorders should be attended to by a physician, however, there are also small steps you can take to help strengthen your brain, like eating more healthy foods. Sleep and healthy food can make a huge difference.
