It is very natural in first moment to be confused and don't know what to do.
- First, absolutley most important is to identify the problem, is it related to teen drug abusing or not. To be sure is Your teenager really had contact with drugs and really have drug abusing problems. i am saying this because teenagers are sensitive and offten you can see some signs but they don't strictly to be connected with substancies abusing, sometime they don't talk to much or don't eat to much, but that also can mean that they fealt in love, for example. So don't panic, that is first step.Every parent's worst nightmare is finding out one of their children has a drug problem. Even worse would be losing a child to a drug related death and wondering if there was anything you could have done to save them. Just as children need to be educated about drugs, parents need to be educated as to what signs they should be looking for that might indicate a problem.There are many physical and behavioral signs that your child may have a drug abuse problem. Knowing what some of these signs are may be the difference between getting your child the help they need and finding out too late that they were in trouble. First, we'll take a look at the behavioral side of it. The most important thing you can do as a parent is be actively involved your child's life. This means be more than just someone who provides them with food and shelter. Be involved in their school life and their social life. Ask them questions about where they're going and who's going to be there. Insist on meeting their friends and their parents to find out what kind of people they are hanging out with. If you stay involved in all aspects of your child's life, you'll be more likely to notice a change in their behavior.There are many different behavioral changes that could indicate a drug problem in your teenage child. You may begin to notice that your child is locking their bedroom door all the time or just being more secretive in general. The friends that they've had for years don't seem to be coming around anymore. Instead, they might have a new group of friends that they really don't want you to get to know. You may find that you're catching them lying to you when they never have before. One sign that will show up with almost all drug use is mood swings. Your child may seem very lethargic and overly tired one moment and then hyper-active and aggressive the next. A sudden lack of interest in the things that were once important to them such as athletics or hobbies could occur as well. Changes in appetite and sleep patterns could also be brought on by drug use.
Is any type of treatment 100% guaranteed ?
Unfortinatly there is no such drug rehab program that will give you 100% guarantee, it depends on many factors, but that what you can influence in, is to identify problem early. In that case chances are almost 100% that teenager will become drug free after detox program, so advice to parents is, if you are suspicious that your teenager abusing drugs, don't denied that you see that your kid may have problem with drugs, as soon as you check, and if there is problem, than as soon as your teenager start detox chances or success are better.
If you can't afford treatment, try finding free drug rehab near you.
Are expensive drug treatment better that cheap or free ?
