Drug Problems in the Performing Arts and in Sports
The perception of widespread drug use drug use among musicians may be an important factor in developing attitudes and behaviors related to increased jeopardy for drug and alcohol use. This is not just a problem that affects musicians. All those who pursue a career in the creative professions or in sports find the use of everything from beer to cocaine, and narcotics to prescription medications quite prevalent among their peers, for reasons of enhanced creativity or athletic performance, much needed relaxation, pain control, and a pervasive atmosphere of tolerance. However, when use of stimulants and intoxicants begins to get in the way of performance, relationships, and health, it is time to take stock of the issue and its affect on you and on your family.
