The drug and alcohol crisis is fuelling a social breakdown in Britain, the director of the Centre of Social Justice said today, after a report found that 'legal highs' were widely available from UK websites.
Christian Guy said:
While our addiction problem damages the economy, it is the human consequences that present the real tragedy.
Drug and alcohol abuse fuels poverty and deprivation, leading to family breakdown and child neglect, homelessness, crime, debt, and long-term worklessness.
From its impact on children to its consequences for pensioners, dependency destroys lives, wrecks families and blights communities.
