Summary

The major message of this chapter is that individuals might have to work hard to take care of themselves. If they have risk factors for becoming a drug user, then they need to pay attention to them. If there are some that they can’t avoid, like genetic factors or drugs in the environment, then they have to work doubly hard at controlling the risk factors that they can. If drugs are being sold or are available, then avoiding those places and people and practicing the ability to say no is important. A conference with a physician or another professional would be helpful.
