Do You Have a Cleaning Fluids Addiction? Best Rehab Options for Recovery

Cleaning fluids are actually some of the most widely abused substances among those who are under the age of eighteen.

cleaning fluids addiction information

This makes sense because they’re easy and legal to purchase, and most people actually already have them in their homes. In most cases, older children and teenagers who use cleaning fluids do so out of curiosity, but statistics show that they most likely come from dysfunctional families. These kids tend to be withdrawn socially, unless they’re with a group of like-minded, drug abusing friends.

Because cleaning fluids are generally either sniffed, huffed or snorted, they fall into the Inhalant category of drugs. Some of the most common types of cleaning fluids that are regularly chosen are aerosol sprays, paint thinners, spot removers, dry cleaning fluid and degreasers. At room temperature, these substances will vaporize, which makes them easy to use for the purpose of getting high.

Maybe you’ve been abusing cleaning fluids for a period of time, or perhaps you’re a parent of a child who may be abusing them. Either way, it’s important to understand the serious consequences of this type of abuse, as well as ways to get help through cleaning fluid addiction treatment.
