What do you do if your daughter is experimenting with drugs or alcohol? Substance abuse can be highly dangerous to adolescents and teens, particularly if it leads to addiction.
The Effects of Teen Substance Abuse
Drugs, including prescription drugs, alcohol and tobacco all cause serious damage to the developing human body. Some drugs severely impair a person’s ability to make healthy choices and decisions. For example, teenage girls that drink are more likely to get involved in dangerous situations, such as having unprotected sex. Teens who use drugs or alcohol are also more likely to do poorly in school and choose negative peer groups. Substance abuse can also be a sign of deeper psychological issues such as depression.
