infographic: Mixing Alcohol and Amphetamines

This infographic presents data from a USC/UCLA study and that reveals the dangers of mixing alcohol and amphetamines. It contains a bar graph that illustrates how alcohol often acts as an immediate “trigger” for methamphetamine use among users, as it reduces their inhibitions and makes them more likely to give into their urges to use methamphetamines. The infographic further highlights the dangers of mixing the increasing common prescription amphetamine Adderall with alcohol, a combination that often causes users to drink significantly more than they might normally as they tend to feel less drunk than they actually are. This can lead to alcohol poisoning or other potential deadly consequences including heart problems.
