The Facts about Solvent Addiction

One of the biggest reasons that solvent abuse has escalated to new heights is due to how common solvent products are in nearly any household. Nail polish, glue, gasoline, ethanol, and so on are everywhere, meaning that when we finally decide to get our lives back together we have to contend with this temptation on a daily basis, unless we overcome it. Some of the most common side effects of solvent addiction and abuse are:

  • Light-Headedness
  • Vertigo
  • Impaired Coordination
  • Headache
  • Sluggishness
  • Cognitive Impairment
  • Drowsiness
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Slurred Speech
