Substance abuse is a matter that has been in discussion for the past few years as it has been a serious issue on the run. More than 15.4% of adolescents start abusing tobacco, and addiction begins as young as 12 years old. Reports suggest more than half of the population has indulged in constant substance abuse at least once in their life. With the emergence of electric cigarettes and new forms of substances in the market, accessibility, and affordability have become a reality, due to which more students are indulging in substance abuse.

What begins as leisure converts to addiction, and it is seen that drug abuse cases have been on the rise ever since. It starts at a very young age and, if not controlled or regulated, can lead to serious mental disorders as well. Because of this, media, as well as OTT platforms, took it upon themselves to educate the masses, especially the young adults who view their shows about substance abuse in detail.

After the success of shows like Euphoria, it became important to come up with more shows that helped people understand these problems, not just from an adolescent’s perspective but even from an institution’s perspective, like parents, schools, or religious institutions.
One such show that started off during the pandemic, an uncertain period for everyone, when all were vulnerable and more prone to substance abuse, was H00ightown.

It was loved by the audiences and ever since had its second season premiered in 2021. However, it took a break and is now going to be back after two years for season three.
