ATHLETES AND DRUGS
Drug addiction can appear in all walks of life, even among the very successful. Given the psychological stress and the physical demands of professional sports, even America’s top athletes can sometimes become addicted to opioid pain relievers, alcohol, and other mind-altering substances.
Professional athletes exert themselves in their sport and it can take a toll on their body. Unfortunately, some of these athletes turn to drugs to help alleviate the pain of their injury and need a drug rehab to overcome their addiction.
