The Recovery Village https://www.therecoveryvillage.com/teen-addiction/ Should I Worry About My Teen Doing Drugs?
A drug problem may be something your teen never has to go through, but history has proven that drugs can affect anyone at anytime. In fact, the teen drug use statistics are hard to ignore. Studies have shown that 40% of 12th graders, 30% of 10th graders and 13% of 8th graders have used a drug in the past year. This adds up to millions of young people. Even if your teen doesnít use drugs, itís likely they at least knows someone who does.
If you see signs that your child is abusing drugs or alcohol, you need to take action now. Too many times, we at The Recovery Village have spoken with brokenhearted parents who wished they had acted when they first noticed signs of potential substance abuse, before the problem spiraled into addiction. Avoid that outcome by taking steps today to stop this behavior in your teen now.
