Steroids, Aggression and Family Health

Steroid-induced aggression is probably one of the most well-known side effects of steroid use. Everyone has heard of “roid rage.” Reuters published a study that found, “Men who used anabolic steroids either in the past year or at any time in their lives were about twice as likely to have committed at least one violent act in the past year than men who never used them.”2Steroid use leads to increased aggression. And aggression puts individuals, friends and family members at risk. Violence at home disrupts the health, happiness and safety of everyone involved.

Steroid Abuse and Physical Health

Steroids may improve muscle mass or athletic performance, but they cause as many negative physical health effects as desired ones. In males steroid abuse can diminish sex drive. A common side effect of steroid abuse in males is erectile dysfunction. This makes it difficult to have a normal, healthy sexual relationship. Additionally steroids can cause liver damage, heart damage and other health concerns. These leave families stressed, worried and at risk of losing a loved one — the greatest harm any drug can do to a family.
