Description

Once viewed as a problem only associated with body builders, Olympians and professional athletes, performance-enhancing drug abuse is no longer confined to these groups. In addition to those taking these drugs for sports, larger numbers of young people are turning to performance-enhancing drugs (e.g., methyltestosterone, androstenedione, HGH, stimulants) to improve their appearance. Well-informed healthcare professionals can help teens avoid making the wrong choices by providing guidance to those at risk and to their parents.
