American Addiction Center's Team of Adolescent Addiction Specialists Provide Key Professional Advice for Parents in Talking to Their Teens About Substance Use

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) August 08, 2013

Studies show that adolescents are up to 50% less likely to get involved with substance abuse if their parent(s) spoke with them about drugs and alcohol. In a new article entitled Professional Advice: How Parents Can Talk to Teens About Substance Use, enlisted its on-staff professionals who specialize in the treatment and rehabilitation of adolescents ages 13-17 to offer valuable tips for speaking to kids about substance use. The article discusses the importance of boundaries, consistency and leading the dialogue with the right intentions, for the purpose of creating the most effective conversation.

Many adolescents are also turning to less predictable but highly dangerous substances to get high. Inhalants Pose Major Threat to Children is another article found on that provides insight into the dangerous world of inhalants, with some frightening statistics. For example, one survey found that 35% of kids with a history of substance abuse – some as young as 12 – turn to inhalants for a quick, euphoric feeling.
