No drugs

Did you know…..

Many people die each year because of their addiction to drugs, tobacco and alcohol?

Cocaine, heroin, amphetamines, etc., take many lives each year.

In recent years the use of cocaine has increased a lot in our country. Cocaine can lead to death, as it frequently produces strokes and myocardial infarction. To this must be added deaths due to overdoses and adulterations.

Unfortunately many people who use drugs do not quite believe the dangers of drugs.
In Spain there have been numerous anti-drug programs, but unfortunately the drug is easy to acquire in our country and in many others.

Tolerance (English)

di no a las drogas
say no to drugs

What is Tolerance  ?

In drugs abuse Tolerance is defined as the need to increase the dose progressively in order to produce the effect originally achieved by smaller amounts.

As Tolerance is a progressive increase in dosage, it may be several hundred fold greater than the first dose after a short period of time.

In addiction to drugs, alcohol and other substances is common to find tolerance and physical or psychological dependence. The elimination of such drugs or alcohol triggers a withdrawal syndrome. For example, we will find physical dependence, tolerance and withdrawal in heroin addiction.
