Is there Another way of saying 'Physically, mentally, psychologically, spiritually(maybe?)'

So instead of saying

Drugs are bad 'Physically, mentally, psychologically...

is there a nice phrase or a word to convey this meaning?

The word Systemically would cover the entire body and its subsystems. In your example, you could say, "Drugs are systemically bad," or "Drugs are a systemic problem."

    Great word :-)! In a technical context it can be paired with adverse/side effects: drugs have/cause systemic side effects or systemic adverse effects
