Shocking videos released by a US charity show the horrific toll drug addiction takes on the human body.

Unlike common “before and after” photographs, these clips show the gradual deterioration of addicts – and the horrendous affects of substance abuse.

The potentially catastrophic consequences are plain to see.

A project, titled Faces of Addiction, was put together by Rehabs.com and includes 13 unnamed individuals who have been arrested for various drug offences – including crystal meth, cocaine, heroin and pain pills.

A charity spokesperson said: "The pursuit of a drug habit can cost these people everything – their friends and family, their home and livelihood.

"And nowhere is that impact more evident than in the faces of addicts themselves."

Rehabs.comAbuse: The faces of addiction

In some of the worst cases, addicts” faces have developed visible facial wasting and open sores – teeth are decayed and missing.

One woman, first arrested on possession of methamphetamine in 2010, is only 25 – by 2014 her face is covered in painful sores.

A cocaine user first arrested in 2009 at the age of 46. He appears well-built and reasonably healthy.

In just five years he has lost almost all of his teeth and hair – his mouth is crumpled into a depressing grimace.

The very long-term effects of crystal meth are shown in the video of a woman first arrested in 1997.

At 43, she seems to be in good health – 16 years later her mouth and most of her face is a mess of wrinkles and almost all of her hair has gone.

The charity adds: "While meth is often seen as one of the more visibly destructive drugs, leading to facial wasting and open sores, various other illicit drugs, and even prescription medications can cause similarly severe symptoms when chronically abused."

"The relentless compulsion to get high makes drug use the driving force in an addict’s life.

"Self-neglect becomes normal – an accepted cost of continuing to use drugs; the consequences of addiction can remain etched in their very skin for years."

A disclaimer form the charity states that these are 13 very extreme cases of drug abuse – but do not show the direct result of addiction.

Rather, they depict the physical deterioration of individuals who have been involved in repeated arrests, and serve as a startling visual timeline – with appearances profoundly altered as a consequence of life impacted by drugs or drug-related crime.

All individuals were arrested on drug charges or related charges, and are considered innocent until proven guilty.
