Introduction

A drug is any chemical taken into the body that alters the normal body processes. There are many different reasons why people take drugs.

Anabolic steroids are manmade substances related to testosterone (male sex hormone). Doctors use anabolic steroids to treat hormone problems in men, delayed puberty, and muscle loss from some diseases.
