Morningside Recovery – Drug Education and Prevention for Your Teen

Teens, like adults, take drugs for various reasons. Although teens are largely aware that they should not take drugs, they may not fully realize the dangers or take them seriously. This is particularly true when teens are exposed to adults who regularly use drugs or if their parents do not take an active interest in what they are doing. Adults can help prevent teenage drug use by leading by example and not using drugs themselves. Educating themselves and their teens is the next critical step in helping youth fully understand how harmful drugs can be. In addition, when adults take an active interest in the lives of their teenaged children, they are better able to help resolve any issues that they may be having and steer them toward safer and more fulfilling activities.
