Signs of Drug Use in Teens
Drug use among teens has dropped by 30% since 2013 among high school seniors. Cigarettes, alcohol, heroin, prescription opioids, meth, sedatives and ketamine are some of the drugs that have declined in usage over the last six years. Despite the reduction in drug use, teens are still abusing drugs.
Research shows that most addictions are formed during adolescence (individuals between the ages of 10 and 24). For this reason it is critical to do all we can to inform parents and educators as well as young people about the realities of substance use disorder. A Guide to the Signs of Drug Use in Teens is an excellent resource regarding the issue of addiction in our teens.
