Teenagers who are living with autistic characteristics and/or ADHD may be more likely to abuse alcohol, reports a new study at Washington University in St. Louis.

Parents of ‪#‎teens‬ with ‪#‎ADHD‬ or ‪#‎autism‬ – like parents of any child – can bear a significant impact on the situation by paying attention to changes in behavior, identifying ‪#‎alcohol‬ use or abuse early, and taking immediate action.

Using marijuana during adolescence can lead to significant problems later in life. For example, researchers at +Duke University suggest that teens who abuse #marijuana‬  develop into adults with IQ declines as large as 8 points.

Stopping this damage means stopping marijuana abuse, and that’s something #teens‬  may not be able to do without help. With the help of a structured #addiction‬   treatment program, however, teens may have access to the resources that can help them to stop abusing marijuana, and they may also learn how to pull together a healthier, happier life as adults in the process.

The +National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA/NIH)  reports that fewer than 12 percent of teens who are addicted to prescription painkillers get help for their addictions.

What can parents do to help their teens overcome #addiction

Families can help by holding an intervention. By talking openly about the addiction, with the help of an interventionist or a family mediator, parents can help to break through the denial that can hide an addiction and they can help their #teens‬   enter a formal treatment program for addiction and learn how to leave their troubling actions behind. For more on how to prepare for an #intervention‬ , follow the link below.

If you're concerned about your teen‬'s #health‬ , there are a number of thing you can do to guide your teen to make healthy decision and ensure your teen's wellbeing.

Doctors can also be valuable allies. #Teens  who feel uncomfortable with the idea of talking to a parent might willingly discuss sensitive issues with a #doctor‬ , as this person is a professional and legally obligated to keep issues both private and confidential.

For more on what you can do to guide your son to a healthy future, follow the link.

When someone you love is under coming a challenging time, it is important for you to be there to offer the love and support they need. If your son is struggling with substance abuse, your participation is crucial to your son’s progress in #rehabilitation

There are a number of things you can do to make sure that you are the support you want to be in your son’s #recovery , including: being available when your son wants to talk, being a positive role model for your son, learning all you can about your son’s #drug  of choice, #addiction  information, and #treatment  options.

Is your teen taking prescription painkillers in hopes of having a "good time" with friends?

As your ‪#‎teen‬ returns to ‪#‎school‬, perhaps it's time to pay closer attention to how your teen is having "fun." ‪#‎Prescription‬ ‪#‎drug‬ misuse has risen considerably since 2000, and is the most commonly abused substance after alcohol and ‪#‎marijuana‬ for people 14 and older, according to the American Sociological Association.
Wanting to have a good time with friends, not peer pressure, drives some young adults to misuse prescription meds.

"Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them." - +Bruce Lee

As a parent, you want to keep your children from making mistakes and suffering the consequences of those mistakes. Still, teens are bound to make mistakes much like adults. It may come as a surprise when you find out your teen has been abusing ‪‎drugs‬ or ‪alcohol‬. Nevertheless, you must forgive your teen and guide them toward recovery. With your forgiveness and support, your teen will be better capable to recover from #addiction‬ .

Are you concerned about the messages your children are seeing on #Facebook ? Have you taught your children how to represent them online and how to safely navigate the online world?

Researchers find that teens are looking toward #social‬ media to see the norms of their age group. Often, they find references to #marijuana‬  use and #alcohol‬  excess.

In this +National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA/NIH) video, Dr. Megan Moreno from the +UW (University of Washington) School of Medicine discusses her research on #addiction‬   and social media.

“In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.” - John Muir

When was the last time you and your #family  took a walk with nature? Taking a walk in nature can have numerous physical and mental #health   benefits. If your son is having trouble with substance abuse, a strong relationship with #nature  will not only help him with exercising the body and relieving stress, but give him a new appreciation for life.

The unique setting at Muir Wood in Petaluma, CA. is one of solitude and peace, promoting both introspection and serenity within our patients. Our goal is to provide only the best treatment therapies for #teen   #boys  with #drug  or #alcohol   #addictions  and co-occurring disorders.

In order to succeed in the world, teens need to learn how to focus, listen to others, set goals, and so much more.

Teens who have mental illnesses may struggle to learn these lessons, as they may be starting their educational process so much later than their peers. #Teens  who had substance abuse issues may have arrested their skills development, and now, they must make up for lost time. It’s a difficult challenge, but life skills coaching could help.

At Muir Wood, we provide help for adolescent #boys  who have mental illnesses, #addictions  or both. As part of our treatment plans, we provide life skills #coaching , helping our clients to prepare for the challenges they’ll face when they graduate from #highschool .
