Teens & Young Adults
Teenage drug abuse commonly requires immediate, professional intervention.
How to talk to your kids about drugs
Be proactive and talk to them about drugs and alcohol before they might be tempted to use or try either. Start the conversation when they are in elementary school but continue to talk to them in junior high and high school when they are more likely to encounter drugs and alcohol. Make your talks educational and even anecdotal, but don’t be condescending or threatening.
