Many people struggling with drug addiction often refer to drugs by their street names. A wide variety of drugs have street names, including prescription drugs. Drug slang allows people using substances to talk about them discreetly.

If you suspect that someone may be using drugs, it is important to discern the different words and phrases associated with drugs and drug use. Since addiction is a disease and a person may want to quit but cannot get themselves to, professional help with rehabilitation is their best bet to get back on their feet and back to their best life.
