This essay explores the potential for drug usage among female athletes and if there is any relation between drug usage and ethnicity. Drug addiction is a serious issue that can have a negative impact on an individual's health, family, social life, and career. The study employs a mixed methods approach in order to examine the prevalence of drug use among female athletes and to explore whether there is any relation between drug use and ethnicity. Results from the study suggest that while the use of performance-enhancing drugs is often thought of as being limited to male athletes, female athletes are also at risk for drug use. Given the serious consequences of drug addiction, these findings highlight the need for further research on this topic as well as interventions to prevent drug use among female athletes.
