As sad as it is, teen addictions range from smoking cigarettes to marijuana, heroin, ecstasy, club drugs, cocaine, and alcohol. Teens have addictions that are as serious and deadly as any adult addict. Despite the efforts of schools and parents and state laws to keep teens safe from any drug, the drugs find their way into the teens’ lives.
Peer pressure and Teenage Substance Use
In our competitive world, especially with all the peer pressure to fit in and do the popular thing, teens are faced with a variety of demands on their status. Most teens have no idea what the side effects can do, especially if mixed with other drugs or alcohol. They just do what their friends are doing, seeing only the temporary result.
Fear of Telling the Parents
Even with all the warnings that are guided into the teen’s lives, many are still addicted to their chosen vice. It is hard for a teenager to go to their parents with such a problem, so many will continue to hide their addiction until it becomes a danger to their lives or future health, and even the health of their future children.
If you think your teen has some type of drug use in their life, and you are concerned for their safety and future well-being, take time to inform them of the dangers and consider a treatment plan. Our professional staff can help your loved one become drug free and healthy again.
