Teen Addiction Treatment
Teenagers and Addiction
Study after study reveals long-term drug and alcohol users began their addiction before reaching the age of 18. This means seeking professional help is vital. The sooner you seek help the better. Most teens start taking drugs or alcohol for recreational purposes.
Their drug or alcohol use can get out of control to the point where your teen is unable to say ‘no’. Many teens start with so-called ‘gateway’ drugs such as alcohol or cannabis and then transition to harder drugs such as heroin and cocaine.
An extensive list of factors can result in teen addiction. Most notably, teenagers’ brains are not as developed by those of adults. Studies show that the human brain is even developing until the age of 25.
This means that teenagers are more susceptible to taking risks, not thinking of the consequences, and not registering the legal, moral, and very real prospect of their drug use and subsequently, their addiction.
