Teens are a population of people, most at risk for drug use, abuse, and addiction. For troubled teens, the risk that teens will smoke, drink, get drunk and use illegal drugs increase sharply if they are highly stressed, frequently bored or have substantial amounts of spending money.
According to The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA), below are the top five reasons teens resource to drugs:
1. To combat loneliness, low self-esteem, anxiety, or depression
2. To mentally ‘check-out’ of family issues or school troubles
3. To ease discomfort in an unfamiliar situation
4. To look cool or change their image/reputation
5. To fit in with a desired group of friend
