These shocking before and after pictures show the negative effects of drug addiction on the human face. Released with the hope that kids will think twice about ever touching drugs by appealing to their vanity, these pictures show how addicts have lost teeth and scratched their skin to the bone.
These pictures show the first arrest of a drug addict and a picture taken in some cases just a few months later. The pairs of mug shots have been assembled by the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon. Some of the transformations are very dramatic.
People that once looked normal in their initial photos, taken in their early stages of addiction, transform into unrecognizable wrecks. This is evidence you can see of the damage caused within months from using meth, heroin or cocaine.
