Street Names for Cocaine

Statistics demonstrate nearly 7 percent of teens have tried cocaine by the senior year of high school and half have tried some sort of illicit drug by the time high school is finished. The more parents know about what children are doing and what is happening in peer groups, the easier it is to recognize symptoms of possible addiction.

Talk to Teens

Many teens do not receive treatment for addiction. If it is even thought that a child or teen is using or abusing drugs, take action. The sooner the problem is addressed, the less likely it is that experimentation will lead to abuse and addiction. Immediately begin more close monitoring of a teen’s activities and set up reasonable rules and consequences which are enforceable. The most important thing a family can do is not deny a problem exists, rather focus on the ability to handle the issue and take it seriously.
