WHAT ARE INHALANTS

Inhaling (also called “huffing” or “sniffing”) chemicals is a problem for many people including teenagers. Inhalants are cheap and can be found everywhere – in kitchens, garages and schools. There are hundreds of different materials that can be abused by people who inhale these dangerous chemicals. Inhalants not only damage the nervous system, but other organs such as the lungs, liver, heart and kidney can be injured permanently.
