The Juice Bar

The juice Bar (Image & Performance Enhancing Drugs)

Most people who use image enhancing drugs are not professional athletes but people looking for a healthier and better looking body. So those who use them do not identify themselves as drug users.

However, in addition to a range of significant health risks, even though anabolic steroids do not cause the same high as other drugs, steroids are reinforcing and so can lead to addiction.
