Inhalants

Other Substances

Inhalants Awareness
 

Inhalants are breathable chemical vapors that produce psychoactive (mind-altering) effects. A variety of products in the home and in the workplace contain substances that can be inhaled. Many people do not think of these products, such as spray paints, glues, and cleaning fluids as drugs because they were never meant to be used to achieve an intoxicating effect. Yet, young children and adolescents can easily obtain them and are among those most likely to abuse these extreme toxic substances.
 


 


Inhalants fall into 3 categories:

Solvents (paint thinner, glues, gasoline)

Gases (butane lighters, hellium, propane)

Aerosols (hair sprays, whipping cream, spray paint)

Warning Signs - How can you tell if someone is using inhalants?

  • Slurred speech

  • Drunk, dizzy, or dazed appearance

  • Unusual breath odor

  • Chemical smell on clothing

  • Paint stains on body or face

  • Red eyes

  • Runny nose
