Millennium Treatment Group Sees Increase in Marijuana Use Among Youth
Date:8/22/2014

Lake Worth, FL (PRWEB) August 22, 2014

Millennium Treatment Group has recently noticed an increase in the popularity of marijuana, resulting in a high level of drug use among teenagers. The treatment facility aims to help those of all ages fight against drug addiction and work to minimize drug abuse.

America is currently seeing some of the highest levels of alcohol and drug addiction in history. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, "In 2012, an estimated 23.9 million Americans aged 12 or older—or 9.2 percent of the population—had used an illicit drug or abused a psychotherapeutic medication in the past month.”

According to http://www.drugabuse.gov, 7 percent of eighth graders, 18 percent of tenth graders and 22.7 percent of high school seniors have used marijuana in the past month. The percentage of prescription drug use has also increased. Illicit drug use among teenagers remains high and continues to increase.

Millennium Treatment Group believes the rising marijuana use reflects changing perceptions and attitudes towards drugs in today’s society. The perception of marijuana being dangerous has increased. The legalization of marijuana in several states has put forth the perception that marijuana is safe. Because of this, today’s youth population does not see the danger in abusing drugs.

They offer programs to people 18 years old and up. to help them manage their addiction and learn to live a healthy, sober life.
