We here at Addiction Blog strive to help parents raise healthy young people. In this interview, we hope to help you define and recognize problems with drugs or alcohol early. So, if you’re a worried parent, know first that you are not alone. However, we encourage you to learn about addiction treatment for teens and to react quickly.
Is My Teenager Using Drugs?
If you think there is a problem, there probably is.
It’s a fact that teenagers are more inclined to take risks and show impulsive behavior. Drug use can sometimes be a part of that behavior, and the struggle of every parent is to notice problems on time and to react. So, what can a parent do after the first hint of drug use in their teen? How can parents start to recognize the influence of drugs in the first place? And what can they do about it?
Today we talk with Daren Casagrande, Associate Director of Outpatient Services for Advent Group Ministries, and have put your questions to the experts. The goal? To provide you with as much information as possible in the battle with teen addiction. However, if you have more questions or want to share your experience, please address them in the comments section below. We will try to answer all of your questions quickly and personally.
