How to Talk to Your Teen about Drugs and Partying

According to Drugfree.org, only 10 percent of the estimated 1.4 million teens with substance abuse problems receive treatment. Don’t let your child be another sad statistic. If you think your teen is using drugs or drinking, take action. The sooner you address the problem, the less likely that their experimentation will lead to abuse and addiction. Immediately begin to more closely monitor your teen’s activities and set up reasonable rules and consequences that are enforceable. The most important thing you can do as a parent is not deny that a drug or alcohol problem exists. If the problem is beyond your ability to handle, ask for help. There are many drug and alcohol treatment programs that are tailored to teens.
