Long-term effects of drug abuse on physical and mental health

Cocaine use has been linked to increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. Opioid use, on the other hand, can lead to respiratory problems such as decreased breathing rate and chronic bronchitis. In addition, chronic use of drugs like methamphetamine and ecstasy can lead to permanent neurological damage, including memory loss, impaired cognitive function, and mood disorders. The development of chronic health problems can vary based on factors such as the type of drug used, the frequency of use, and the individual's overall health status.
