I’ve come to learn as an adult that love is a hell of a drug. It’s one of the most dangerous things that human beings can have. It’s also one of the most beautiful things that human beings can possess because love, on one hand, gives you the ability to care for a human being sometimes more than you would care for yourself. Love, unfortunately, sometimes gives you the ability to forgive somebody and blind yourself to the truth.

That was an epiphany for me. So I thought, well, maybe I can help somebody, too.
The similarities between street drug abuse and psychotropic prescription drug use are disturbing. Both types are toxic. Both can cause psychosis, damage the brain and other organs, and even cause death. And neither type of mind-altering drugs, legal or illegal, treats disease. It’s important to recognize that the only significant difference between many prescription psychotropic drugs and street drugs such as speed and downers is that prescription drugs are legal.
