Clemson Student Talks About His Battle With An Addiction To Cocaine & Heroin.

Updated: Apr 29, 2019

How much do typical college students drink?

Isn't it normal for college kids to party and use drugs?

It's pretty much expected that kids are going to binge drink, do some drugs, and basically party hard in college. Luckily, most of them grow out of that phase, and go on to be functioning adults. Most never develop an addiction problem.

But some of them don't grow out of it. Some of them do develop an addiction that threatens to ruin their lives, and it's very difficult for parents to tell the difference.

Is your college aged kid, just doing the normal college party scene or does your kid have a problem with drugs or alcohol?

In this video, Chas (a Clemson student) talks candidly about his fall into addiction.

Chas' substance abuse didn't start until his freshman year. In fact, during high school, he was totally against drugs and alcohol. He even stopped being friends with other kids who did drugs. But, by the time he was a senior at Clemson University, he was a full-blown drug addict.

How did Chas (a good kid from a good family) end up almost dying from a Heroin overdose?

The opioid epidemic is killing young people at an alarming rate. Trust me...if it can happen to this family, it can happen to yours!

Watch this video to find out how to identify the difference between normal college partying behavior and real life addiction.
