Have the Talk About Teens & Drugs
It’s so important to keep the lines of communication open with your teens. Talk to your teens about drugs and what can happen when things get out of control.
Know the Signs
- Poor academic performance
- Missing school
- Getting into trouble at school
- Becoming defiant
- Increased illegal behavior
- Decreased interest in activities
- Changing friends
- Acting secretive
- Isolating themselves
While some of these signs sound like typical teenage behavior, you shouldn’t take visible warning signs lightly. This goes back to having the talk. If you are worried your teen is going down the wrong path, or you have discovered evidence only to have them deny it. Then, it might be time to have them tested. Knowing what you are up against is the first step.
