Abstract:

Across the United States, in small towns and major cities, in suburbs and slums, in public and private schools, thousands of kids are experimenting with drugs. Many of them will become addicts; some will die. This book focuses entirely on adolescent alcohol and other drug use, and addresses the immediate dangers that threaten these kids. It explores the short and long term effects of their addiction and offers parents advice to combat this growing epidemic, including how to intervene, and identify common misperceptions about addiction. Knowledge is the key to defeating drug addictions, and that is what this book provides. Full of candid true stories from adolescent drug users, with facts based on the most recent scientific research, it tells you exactly what you need to know to deal with your child's problem, covering such important topics as: common myths and misconceptions about drug addiction; crucial differences between adult and adolescent dependency; reasons kids get hooked; stages of adolescent addiction; different kinds of drugs kids use and combine; various treatment options and how to choose the best treatment for your child; strategies for handling relapses.
