ORCHID Recovery Center Reveals Lasting Dangers of Teenage Drinking
Date:6/25/2013

Palm Springs, Florida (PRWEB) June 25, 2013

ORCHID Recovery Center is a substance abuse treatment facility that is dedicated to assisting in the prevention of addiction by helping to educate community members regarding the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. As such, a recent article published by PsychCentral that highlights the correlation between teenage drinking and alcohol abuse caught the attention of ORCHID's representative. Here, this professional shares the information from the new study and encourages parents to play an active role in monitoring their teenagers' behavior.

The article explains: "New research shows that youths who first drink during puberty are at greater risk for developing later alcohol problems" and that the common belief was that "the earlier adolescents began to drink, the bigger problems they faced later in life." However, the study conducted by researchers at the Central Institute of Mental Health at the University of Heidelberg has found that this is actually not the case.

Miriam Schneider, Ph.D., who is one of the authors of this groundbreaking study, states: "However, a closer look at the statistics revealed a peak risk of alcohol use disorders for those beginning at 12 to 14 years of age, while even earlier beginners seemed to have a slightly lower risk."

While the exact cause of this trend is not something that researchers can define at this time, those working on the study point to the fact that the brain is in a heavy developmental phase during puberty as one of the reasons why alcohol could have such a profound effect during this stage of life. According to the article, the reward system of the brain is developing during the earlier years of puberty and it is "in a highly vulnerable state for any kind of reward, and drug rewards in particular. This high vulnerability might also affect reward seeking, or in this particular case, alcohol seeking and drinking behavior later in life."

A representative from ORCHID Recovery Center comments: "This insight into the development of the brain and how alcohol use can impact it at an early age is a great resource for individuals who are trying to understand why some adults are more prone to alcohol abuse than others. Additionally, I believe that this information can help parents to best monitor their children's behavior. Many parents may not believe that kids as young as 12 are engaging in alcohol use, so they may not educate their children regarding this issue until later. By talking about the subject at a younger age, parents can better prepare their kids to make smarter decisions as they go through puberty."

The professionals at ORCHID Recovery Center encourage individuals who are battling with substance abuse, or who have a loved one who is fighting addiction, to contact a treatment center immediately.
