Teen drinking, teen alcoholism and teen substance abuse can end young lives before they even begin. If your teen is currently dealing with a substance abuse or addiction problem, no matter how much you love them, it may not be getting through.

Even scarier – there is no way for them to know that what they are taking is what they think it is, and most have no regard for the consequences anyway.
The disappointment you have in your child’s behavior is nothing compared to the grief of having to arrange their funeral – or worse, seeing them suffer for the rest of their life with debilitating and irreversible nerve or brain damage from an “accidental” overdose.
