Armed Forces and drug addiction

In the Armed Forces, there are additional factors contributing to the use of drugs by military personnel:

1. A sharp change in living conditions.

2. A sharp change in social status.

3. A sharp increase in physical and emotional stress.

All these are stressful factors that addicts are used to reacting with drugs.

How addicts get money for drugs:

1. Loan without return. Usually borrowed from friends. Periodically try to borrow money in order to repay debts. Sometimes parents and the command are blackmailed by the fact that if they do not repay debts, they can be killed.

2. Home theft. First they steal money from relatives' home reserves and wallets, then they sell their belongings and clothes, then family values.

3. Theft. When there is no one else to borrow money from, the addict begins to steal from strangers, including money and things in company rooms and classes, audio and video equipment and computers.
Some steal in shops and stalls.

4. The manufacture and resale of drugs. They do not think not only that this is a criminal offense, but also that from a moral point of view, it is one of the most shameful.

5. Fraud. Usually drug addicts cheat to lure drugs, money or valuables directly.

Complications of regular drug use are life-threatening conditions that require emergency medical attention. They can develop in any drug addict. The longer the experience of drug abuse, the higher the likelihood of their occurrence.
