Chemical Synergy: How Drugs Work Together

Most people have probably heard about so-called ‘Gateway Drugs’. These are the socially acceptable drugs such as alcohol, tobacco and caffeine which create in the user the appetite for something stronger and often lead to experimentation with stronger, illegal drugs. There is abundant, well-documented scientific research indicating that the socially acceptable drugs are not only addictive individually, but when combined, amplify their addictive potential. This research is important to take into consideration when seeking to help someone find freedom from the heavier drugs. True healing necessitates the cessation from all substances, including the socially acceptable ‘gateway drugs’.
