Teens become involved with drugs when socializing with peers for many reasons. Research indicates that at risk teens may display the following signs and symptoms: academic problems or difficulties, poor parent-teen relationship, being unaccountable and have large amounts of free time especially when minimal interests occur, family difficulties including parental separation, marital problems and poor relationships at home. Some teens who present mental problems are at a higher risk to becoming involved with substance abuse. Other reasons why some teens get involved with drugs and alcohol are lack of self esteem and a need for acceptance with a social group.
