2. At 16-Years-Old, She Started Abusing Marijuana, Pain Pills, And, Finally, Heroin:
The absence of the father in the home affects significantly the behavior of adolescents and results in the greater use of alcohol and marijuana. Gabi was just 16 years old when she first got into drugs. After years of feeling like she didn’t fit in, Gabi got involved with a rough crowd who introduced her to marijuana and prescription pain pills. Unfortunately, Gabi’s addiction did not stop there. She was soon addicted to heroin, one of the most dangerous and destructive drugs.
