Talking to Kids and Teens About Addiction

For most parents, keeping their kids safe is their number one priority. When it comes to alcohol, drugs, and other addictions, parents can easily feel helpless or afraid that their children may be unable to resist the temptation. In actuality, parents do have a great deal of influence over what their children do and do not get involved in. When approached correctly, a child is more likely to listen to their parents rather than be influenced by other factors such as strangers, other kids, and the things that they see on television or in movies. Parents also have the ability to create an environment and lifestyle that doesn't foster addictive activities.

Help for Teens Who Drink or Drug And All Those Who Love Them!


The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a component of the National Institutes of Heath (NIH), created this Web site to educate adolescents ages 11 through 15 (as well as their parents and teachers) on the science behind drug abuse. NIDA enlisted the help of teens in developing the site to ensure that the content addresses appropriate questions and timely concerns. Recognizing that teens want to be treated as equals, NIDA scientists were careful not to preach about the dangers of drug use. Rather, the site delivers science-based facts about how drugs affect the brain and body so that kids will be armed with better information to make healthy decisions. Elements such as animated illustrations, quizzes, and games are used throughout the site to clarify concepts, test the visitor's knowledge, and make learning fun through interaction.

The dangers of underage drinking

In the United States, consuming alcohol under the age of 21 is considered underage drinking and is strictly against the law. Drinking underage comes with legal consequences including mandatory community service, suspended license, fines and potential time in jail. Not only do individuals put themselves in danger, but they also put others in jeopardy if they get behind the wheel of a car or become violent.


What are the warning signs of alcoholism

There are various warning signs to help detect potential alcohol abuse. While many signs are recognizable, others may be more difficult to identify. Also, the severity of alcohol abuse may play a role in the warning signs a person exhibits. For example, some people try to cover their alcohol abuse by drinking in private and isolating themselves from others. This makes it challenging for family members or friends to intervene and help their loved one.
