Signs of Addiction in Teens

Signs of substance abuse manifest in several areas including behavioral changes such as mood changes or secretiveness. Personal appearance may change. You may smell smoke on your adolescent’s clothing or hair or fingers may appear stained or burned. Your teen may begin using eye drops frequently or want to go out every night altering personal habits. Home and car related issues may emerge.

You may find medications or money missing from the home or see unusual items used for containers in the car. Health may be affected. Drugs can cause runny nose, queasiness, open sores, or headaches or depression. Lastly, school or work can be affected. Your child may lose interest in extra -curricular activities or not follow through on responsibilities.

The first step is to talk with your teen when you see changes. Change is the constant during adolescent years so it is important to find out the cause of any observed change. Ask your adolescent if he or she is using drugs or alcohol.

What can you do to learn more about the risk factors of drug use and why teens turn to drugs?
