The Consequences Of Teen Abuse Drugs In The Brain

Satisfactory Essays
In the brain when a teen abuses drugs the signals get passed from nerve to nerve by a chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. The main neurotransmitter in a teen brain when a teen does drugs is called dopamine. Drugs over-charge the body with dopamine which sends a "feel good" signal to the brain.
