Do you think — or know — that your child is using drugs or alcohol?

Even if you believe your teen is just “experimenting” it’s important to take action right away.

Casual drug use can quickly turn into drug abuse, dependence or addiction and can lead to accidents, legal trouble and serious health issues.

If you are at all concerned about your child – or even just have a bad feeling – you can and should intervene by:

  • Setting tighter limits with clear consequences

  • Getting outside help and support if necessary

  • Having productive conversations with your child -- remain calm, share your concerns and listen.

  • Closely monitoring your child's behavior and activities
