Inhalant abuse is common in adolescents and young people. However, awareness about its harmful effects is low, and the potential to cause dependence remains a cause of concern. Inhalant abuse is often associated with underlying novelty-seeking traits, which can also predict propensity for other substances of abuse. Inhalants are cheap, freely available, and legal to possess and escape detection in vulnerable groups. There is a need to spread awareness about the harmful effects of inhalants and devise effective primary and relapse prevention strategies.
