Adolescent brains are especially sensitive and susceptible to the chemicals in drugs and alcohol. Experimentation may quickly progress from casual use to heavier use, and finally to dependency. Prevention and/or early intervention can make a difference. If you are concerned about your teen, call your school’s Substance Abuse Counselor for a confidential consultation.
