Illegal drugs and prescription drugs are both equally harmful to young ones, but what about the rampant use of enhancement drugs for young adults that feel the pressure of preforming well in a sanctioned sport. I know that it is nothing new, but it seems that it is on the rise with all the professional hype and needs to be made more aware of in schools. Most schools just skip over this aspect of "Drug Use" and talk about the illegal ones, or the kind that you can get in your medicine cabinet. Parents need to be aware of this up and coming problem, and make their schools more aware of it too!

Hi Carolyn, Your not without hope and luck! The first thing is, what types of drugs is your son abusing? This will help determine the best course of treatment for him. Is he willing to talk about his drug use? Has he ever been in treatment before? When a person is using drugs, the addiction always comes first. They will continue to use until they simply cannot any longer. Usually due to a legal or money problem. It is important that you at least address your sons behavior with him ( staying out for three nights in a row, etc) and talk about what the consequences are for those actions. Also, let him know you are asking him to compromise , perhaps be willing to meet with a substance abuse counselor. In return you will be willing to allow him to live at home, with some boundaries set in place.

I should add, he's still in High School and lives with us. We've suspected for a while but could never get cooperation. I'm very scared for him.

Wonder how I can get treatment or help my child that's 18 and doesn't think he has a problem. He's been gone for 3 days now and will come home tonight for maybe the night then back out tomorrow I'm sure.. I'm sick with worry. I want to help him but he's 18. Are we totally out of luck?

"In fact, kids who learn about the risks of drugs at home are up to fifty percent less likely to use drugs." I do think this helps with kids that are more risk adverse, but there are plenty of people who will take it regardless. Doesn't help as much when the kids want to have fun, maybe escape from life and such. I think emotional intelligence training will help prevent/cut back substance abuse, but too bad it doesn't seem like a high priority for many.
