Performance-Enhancing Drugs

What is a Performance-Enhancing Drug?
A performance-enhancing drug is any substance taken by athletes to improve performance. This term is referenced often and typically refers to anabolic steroid use in sports by professional and amateur athletes. Other substances may also be taken to improve performance, including human growth hormone (hGH), stimulants and diuretics.

A membership to the Resource Exchange Center (REC) grants you access to a comprehensive database of information on the use of anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs in sports, and how they relate to you.

If you are an athlete, parent, coach, athletic trainer or sports program administrator looking for more information on dietary supplements, drugs of abuse, prescription and/or over-the-counter drugs, performance-enhancing drugs or sports nutrition, click here to learn about our Resource Exchange Center (REC).
