Substance abuse treatment programs for troubled teens are found throughout the country, especially in affluent suburban areas. Deciding to seek the recovery (recovery over drug and alcohol addictions) for someone you love (your troubled teens) may be one of the most courageous and life-altering step you'll ever take. Our suggestion is that you choose the program carefully, as this treatment will be the foundation for your child's recovery and determine his or her future success.  Remember, addiction does not go away, and sobriety is a commitment to a lifestyle that will have to remain forever.  Meaning, your addicted child will not be able to recreationally or casually use in the future.  As an addict they need to learn how to live their life drug free, or face total replase (prison or death).

Parents of troubled teens who are abusing drugs and alcohol should be frightened.  Drug addiction with adolescents is very scary.  Kids who are addicted usually do not end up very good.  They either end up dropping out of school, going into the juvenile justice system, or they die. Especially if their addiction continues to progress without an intervention.  Our recommendation to all parents is to move forward with finding help now.  Do not second guess yourself.  What you know about your teen's drug use is probably only the ice berg.  You will not regret intervening, because you might save his or her life.

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder occurs in 3 to 5% of teenage boys and girls. For some reason this disorder occurs more often in boys than girls. ADHD is usually diagnosed in childhood mostly due to the bright contract in attention and activity level of children. These differences are dramatically noticeable when these children are required to maintain their attention during dull, boring and repetitive tasks, and continue to reflect on them into the teenage years if not treated properly. Sometimes troubled teens with ADD or ADHD may need a professional assistance overcoming the problems that they are faced with and many struggling teens need to be placed in the correct environment in order to restore themselves.
