I don't remember any drug use (and I JUST finished watching the movie) - unless you count medical drops at a hospital.

Tons of people in Hell experience what I'd consider endless torture, but it's not inflicted on them by others. It's more like torturous circumstances caused by their own minds (like being buried in mud for all eternity, only their faces above the surface, and being trapped in extremely bleak surroundings, suffering perpetual despair).

Two kids die, but we don't see it happen. One kid is a teenager; the other may not be quite a teenager yet, but close to it.

No, but some deceased people take on the appearances of others in the afterlife. There's nothing scary, harmful or ill-intentioned about it.

Yes, but in the least scary and most beautiful way. It's a tender and loving ghost who looks, sounds and behaves exactly like a normal living person and tries to comfort a lonely, grieving loved one. There are no creepy ghosts standing in the dark staring at someone, moving objects invisibly, or anything like that. I'm extremely scared of ghosts (I usually look up this very trigger on doesthedogdie), and I found these scenes nothing but heartwarming ... and, well, heartbreaking, too.

We don't see any injections, nor do we actually see needles or syringes, but there's a brief hospital scene in which a person has one or more drops, i.e. thin tubes have been inserted into the veins in his hand(s?) with syringes and are still there, kept in place with plasters/band-aids. We don't see them close-up, though, and, again, the scene is brief. Skip about 25 seconds forward from around 13m 20 s (appr. 1 hour and 40 minutes left) to avoid the hospital scene.

Yes, a person stays in a mental institution for what appears to be rather a long time, because she had a mental breakdown after a personal tragedy. There are several scenes in the place. We see no doctors/nurses, other patients or interiors; we only see her in a garden/park being visited by a loved one, but it's as clear from their conversations that she's in a mental institution - and we see a relatively fresh scar from a long cut on the inside of her wrist.

There's a brief scene showing a badly injured person in a hospital bed from above. To avoid the scene, skip forward from when there's 1 hour, 40 minutes and 18 seconds left of the movie (just after Christy says "Yeah, I had a bad piece of fish before bed" after the accident) to when there's 1 hour, 39 minutes and 55 seconds left. (The scene starts around 13m 20s in, but I watched the movie on Netflix, and it shows the remaining time precisely, while the passed time is hard to pin down precisely.)

First we see a scar from a long cut to the wrist (which may or may not have been a suicide attempt). Later on, a person actually commits suicide (we don't know how).

----- SPOILER ---- There's a pretty long scene in Hell showing a large number of living (well, technically dead, but acting alive) people buried in mud very close together, only their faces above the surface.

Yes, and in the movie, people who have committed suicide end up in a kind of hell - not as a punishment, according to a supposed expert of the afterlife, but as an inevitable result of their own thoughts/feelings.

There's lightning and flickering lights from the lightning when Christy and Albert are standing talking in the dream house in the sunset - specifically around 55m 50s in (appr. 57 minutes and 35 seconds left), just after the line "The real Hell is your life gone wrong". It goes on for around two minutes. Unfortunately, you'll miss some somewhat important lines about the consequences of suicide if you skip it.

Yes, and with tragic consequences. There are two car accidents, but the first one we only hear about. We see the second one, which happens around 12 minutes into the movie (appr. 1 hour and 41 minutes left), when Christy is driving in the rain, about to go through a tunnel. Note that this is actually a two-part accident, two crashes a few seconds apart, so don't be fooled by the pause between them. To avoid seeing both crashes, skip to when we switch to a white screen, which brings us to a brief scene showing the victim in a hospital bed. To avoid the hospital scene, too, skip all the way to 13m 45s (appr. 1 hour and 40 minutes left).
