Adolescent Substance Abuse
Flatirons Counseling Services provides counseling and therapy for families of children and teens who are engaging in substance abuse.
There is no question that children and teens face enormous challenges in today’s fast-paced and stressful society. While many children who do experiment in drugs or alcohol do not become addicts, the usage of these substances poses a very risky proposition for their future. Unfortunately, even mild usage of substances can have long-lasting negative consequences.
There is no common scenario that causes substance abuse in children. Issues influencing substance abuse can range from tense family relationships, trouble at school, peer influence, and other sources.
