Poor Sleeping Patterns, Paraphernalia and Red, Glassy Eyes—Licensed Mental Health Counselor at American Addiction Centers Helps Parents Identify Substance Use in the Home

(PRWEB) September 06, 2013

There are certain physical and behavioral signs of drug use in the home, of which all parents should be aware. In “Identifying Drug Use In the Home,” published on, Lisa Sussman, LMHC, provides insight into these various warning signs, noting that when suspicions of adolescent drug use arise, it’s best to follow those key parental instincts. “…If your body is telling you that something just isn’t right, it’s more likely that your gut instinct is kicking in,” Sussman says. The article also advises to keep open the lines of communication between all family members and discuss the dangers of substance use on a continual basis.

Prescription drugs, which have their own unique symptoms and warning signs, remain highly prevalent among adolescents. “What Are the Most Commonly Abused Prescription Medications?” defines the classes of prescription drugs—depressants, stimulants or opioids—and provides some staggering statistics. For example, 1-in-20 high school students abused OxyContin in 2010.
