Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methamphetamine was a factor in 5.6% of substance abuse treatment admissions in 2011.
  • When someone uses marijuana their heart rate, which would normally be about70 to 80 beats per minute, may increase by 20 to 50 beats per minute or even double that.
  • Ecstasy causes many of its effects by releasing large amounts of the brain's reward chemical serotonin, after which the brain becomes significantly depleted of this important chemical which then causes negative behavioral aftereffects that users often experience for several days after taking the drug.
