It can be difficult for any parent of a teenager to know that their teen will likely be exposed to drugs at least once during their adolescence. It is also difficult for parents to accept the statistics that state most teens will try drugs at least once. However, no fact or statistic is as difficult for parents to accept as the truth that many of these teens who simply try drugs with friends or at a party will develop a substance abuse problem. Many teens that have substance abuse problems don’t even recognize that they have an issue forming. This is why parents need to be aware of their child’s behavior so they can get the help their teen needs as soon as possible.
