Warning Signs your Child is in Trouble with Drugs and/or Alcohol

The teenage years bring about many changes. Some of these changes are normal but others can be an indication of a serious problem. As a parent how can you tell the difference?

Below are some warning signs of drug and alcohol use and/or abuse:

  1. Changes in school- truancies, drop in grades.
  2. Changes in friends or conversation with friends- conversations become secretive or contain coded language.
  3. Changes in clothing or music- new interest in clothing or music that emphasize drug use.
  4. Asking to borrow more money than usual.
  5. Loss of interest in activities that your child used to enjoy.
  6. Drug paraphernalia- pipes, rolling papers, empty bottles, eye dops, mouthwash or mints etc…
  7. Missing prescription drugs.
  8. Changes in personality or mood- was outgoing now withdrawn, edginess, etc…
  9. Withdrawn from family and sober friends.
  10. More argumentative, sudden outbursts of rage or anger.
  11. Change in weight, sleep habits and mood.

If your child has any of these signs they may be struggling with substance abuse. It is time to get your child in for an assessment. Always trust your instincts. Doing nothing and hoping the issue goes away puts your child and your family in serious danger.

Testimonials

Grad Testimonial

"We are so indebted to CMYA for their work, support and insights for our son and our family. We felt we had no options when trying to find a school for our 16 year old son who has substance abuse issues as well as depression, anxiety and ADD issues. Then we found CMYA and our family life and our son's life is slowly and steadily turning around. From the Director to the teachers, therapists/counselors and staff, the team works constantly and directly with each student and with each family on our particular issues and as a whole group. I highly recommend this school!"
