Resilience in behavioral health is the ability to bounce back from adversity and mental challenges. Individuals face different obstacles and require unique coping mechanisms. Consequently, people often resort to street drugs for various reasons. They might seek solace, escape, or a temporary high. However, the names used for these substances can differ. Some call them “drugs,” while others refer to them as “substances” or “illicit substances.” These terms may depend on the cultural or regional context. Moreover, there are street names specific to certain drugs, like “weed” for marijuana or “coke” for cocaine.  Resilience is crucial in navigating behavioral health challenges, but understanding the terminology around street drugs is equally important for effective communication and prevention efforts.
