Yes, It Actually Can Happen to Your Child

From Using to Abusing

shutterstock_113534797Curiosity is abundant during the transition from childhood to adulthood and most experimentation is normal and healthy. However, experimentation with drugs and alcohol at this age can be very dangerous. As an adolescent, emotions, hormones, peer pressure, and responsibility are magnified. It is during these years that we learn to effectively combat and manage the newfound stress and responsibilities of being an adult.When teens begin experimenting with drugs and alcohol, they become more likely to start using these substances as a solution to handle the pressures of adulthood. This way of managing stress is what causes addiction and can lead an adolescent down a long hard path during one of the most crucial stages of their life.

The First Experience with Addiction

It is very common for teens and young adults to have a clean track record and no history of serious delinquency simply because of their age and the fact that they just haven’t been exposed to very much in their short lifetime. This is why many parents find it shocking and hard to believe when their child first starts doing drugs or drinking. The truth is, it can happen to anyone and it’s best to keep an open mind and recognize the possibility of drug and alcohol abuse.

The Fragile Minds of the Youth

The teenage years are confusing but full of new adventure. Young girls and boys experience new emotions and changes and are forced to learn how to fit into the adult world. They tend to think they are indestructible, but the fact of the matter is that their brains are still developing and are very vulnerable to the experiences that shape their next few years. The wrong crowd, bullies at school, a first love, and many other factors greatly alter their way of thinking. While most experiences lead to a life lesson learned, there are some experiences that are better off completely avoided. Substance abuse should be avoided if possible and handled right away if discovered. At such a crucial stage of development, addiction can have serious setbacks.

If you or a loved one is suffering from addiction or substance abuse, there are effective solutions and trustworthy treatment centers to help conquer addiction. Call Sprout Health Florida for information on what to do if an adolescent you know might be struggling with an addiction.
