I have consistently learned about drugs and their affects through attaining my Psychology degree. What is so important and shocking to me is how much drugs alter the brains of their users. Addiction needs to be seriously treated in the proper manner. I am lucky to not have any known addicts in my family because of the genetic aspect. I am also very fortunate to not be personally close with anyone who does drugs. That being said, it is extremely real.  The area I am located and surrounding parts of Southern New Jersey are really facing an epidemic of drug addiction. Heroin arrests and cases are increasingly all over the news. It is essentially a world wide problem that hopefully science and psychology can continue to help solve.
