Adolescence is a time of important physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. Learning how to solve problems, build close friendships, make decisions and handle responsibility are important during the teenage years.
Drug use interferes with teens’ ability to learn and improve those skills. Whether it’s alcohol, cigarettes, marijuana or other drugs, the bottom line holds true: teens that use drugs put their future in danger.
Help prevent this by opening the conversation with your teen regarding drug risk and avoidance.
