One of the largest, yet least talked about side effects of drug addiction and abuse, is the money lost to it. Often times more severe addictions require large amounts of time and money to keep the addiction afloat, commonly draining the users personal earnings. For those suffering from chronic and severe substance addiction, economic burdens are usually the most heavily influenced over the course of addiction, which can then affect other parts of a person’s life. Money difficulties are also one of the first indicators to a severe and worsening addiction issue. With the growing and worsening opioid epidemic currently plaguing the country, reported cases of opioid addicts are on the rise, which will undoubtedly parallel that of reported economic burdens tied in directly to it. Our Ocean Breeze Drug Calculator was created with the purpose of helping you calculate the amount of money spent on a crippling, or even milder, addiction issue.
By using the Ocean Breeze Drug Calculator below, we can help you estimate the amount of money you might spend on a weekly and monthly bases. Once your results are submitted, we will then add up the total amount of money spent on drugs, and compare them to other items of similar price that could have been purchased instead. Many users are sometimes unaware as to the amount of money spent on their addiction and the monumental costs required. Chronic substance abusers will often ascertain enough money over a short period of time—that if used for other purposes—could have been used on a new car, overseas vacation, and other expensive commodities.

Due to the nature of the human body and the drugs one might consume, often times certain drugs affect people differently, meaning certain individuals might need to consume more or less than others. Prices for drugs, especially of the illegal kind, change radically depending on location and strains that dealers might sell, which also raises the danger involved in not only obtaining the drugs, but in merely consuming them.
