How does substance abuse affect the community?
- Substance abuse can affect the community because often people on illegal drugs will steal by break and entering into people's homes in the community; murder even if accidental; putting fear into the community; finding drug paraphernalia littered on streets or back alleys; parks where children may be playing and on and on it goes. The person on drugs just needs their fix whether it is a narcotic or alcohol and often will do anything or steal even from their own families to get what they want. They can be dangerous depending on what type of drugs they are on.

Answer . This is one of those "which came first, the chicken or the egg?" questions. A lot of people abuse chemicals (including alcohol) because there is an underlying emo…tional or physical problem and they use these substances to try to feel better. It's a form of self-medicating. Since the before mentioned people do not feel good in some way, there is a large possibility that they will act differently toward the people they are involved with in a relationship. For example: they ingest a chemical that makes them feel all fuzzy and happy so while they are happy, they treat others too good. Then as the chemical wears off, the person starts to treat others in a less generous fashion. Plus, as addiction develops, and the user needs more and more of the chemical, that user tends to lie to others about the useage and everyone knows what lying does to a relationship of any kind. This is just a very simplistic answer but I hope you can see what I'm getting at here...chemical use generally changes personalities and behaviors, and usually for the worst. Good luck to you and remember, don't pick up and use to begin with! Bulletsamach

Well, abuse effects the community in 5 ways. #1: It makes the victim more angry. #2: The abuser begins to feel more powerful. #3: The victim's world is turned upsid…e down because he or she begins to think that everybody in the world is abusive. That's the psychology behind it. #4: Some victims start thinking it's normal to stay in an abusive relationship and they don't look for ways to escape. #5: The people who live in the same community the abuser lives in has to watch out for him or her and they have to notify others about the abuser.

These terms are often used interchangeably, however, substance abuse is a slightly broader category than drug abuse, since some of the substances that people abuse are not rea…lly drugs, such as glue, solvents, etc., which people may inhale in the hope of getting some kind of high.
