According to scientists and experts, drug abuse is capable of affecting a person’s life, physically, psychologically, financially and otherwise.
While a good number of people don’t make it out of the addiction, others do and live better lives. This is the case with controversial Nollywood actress and mother of one, Tonto Dikeh.
While she was in a recent interview on BBC Pidgin, she revealed that she had once battled with hard drugs and that it brought about some setbacks in her life.
The veteran actress also said she wants to use her foundation to help in the rehabilitation of drug addicts so that they can live a drug-free and better life.
“I recently went into drug rehabilitation because it’s something that has set me back a lot in life and I’ve not really talked about it in public. So, given the fact that I am who I am today and I’m clean, I want to take the ‘Say No To Drugs’ back to the streets through the Tonto Dike Foundation,” she said.
