 Today is December 15, 2016.

Taking a look at the growing concern of teens and drug abuse. Having  worked with troubled teens and seeing first hand how teenagers and young adults have become full blown addicts before they hit the age of eighteen.

It’s astonishing how parents either do not know what there kids are into.Or they don’t want to know. Even with all of today’s Technology and  Social Media. Were more in the dark than ever.

Doing a little bit of research and finding some of the causes for today’s teens and why there turning to drugs and alcohol. 

1.The family dynamics has broken down to a one parent household.Mom has become Father and Mother. And I am sorry but if you ask any women that is raising her kids and she will tell you that she wished there was some type of Father figure for both the male and female.

2.Social Media remembering not to long ago I wouldn’t of known 20 people from another state much less another town now you can have as many as 1,000 to 5,000 followers. It is the age of  (HOW TOO!) Make a pipe bomb, how to cook meth, how to smoke it. 

3.Accessibility it is so easy to get whatever type of drug you are looking for! Half the time it’s easy enough for them to reach into your medicine cabinet and {Poof} high as a kite. Scary part is the overdoses. The rise of O.D. is more than  just a passing virus. It’s being called an epidemic,virus,This is a disease and a disease that as a whole we can stop it.

Question is where do we begin to stop it? Is the answer in the system? 

Do we build more institutions? More treatment centers, more education,Communication in the school system , harsher consequences. More questions than answers. But we need to start answering these questions. 

To do that we need to stand together as our history has shown there is strength in numbers. We are as strong as our weakest link. We have become a Country of  {I}. Single ,Me,1. As the song says that One is the loneliest number that you have ever seen.. So with that I hope you enjoyed this post and I will be back soon.
