Identifying Drug Abuse

Identifying Drug Abuse

In this episode of the Drug Training Podcast, I’ll give you the clues you need in identifying drug abuse. I’ll start off with how people take drugs into their body, which gives you understanding of some of the signs of drug abuse. Then I’ll move along and give you more clues in identifying drug abuse and talk about overall signs and symptoms.
