We would all like to believe we know and understand our children. However, things have changed over the years. Our children have grown more independent, making it difficult to always know what they are up to at any given time. As a parent, it's important for you to be on the lookout for changes in behavior. The last thing parents want\u00a0to realize is that their child became a meth addict right under their noses.\r\nPhysical Cues that Your Son May Be A Meth Addict\r\n\r\nFortunately, there are some clear signs your son might be becoming a meth addict. Basically, we can break the signs into two categories: physical signs and behavioral signs.\r\n\r\nThe physical signs of meth abuse are subtle at first, becoming more obvious as the addiction takes hold. The signs include increased physical activity, sleep issues, dilated pupils, profuse sweating, body tremors, constant headaches, loss of appetite and nausea\/vomiting.\r\n\r\nThe behavioral signs of meth abuse are much more disturbing. They include acting paranoid, irritability, compulsive behavior like doing repetitive tasks, acting euphoric and\/or excessively up and unpredictable behavior that seems very much out of character.\r\nHow to Get Help for the Meth Addict\r\nUntil the age of 18-years old, you have a legal responsibility for your son. If he is showing signs of meth addiction, you might start by confronting him in a constructive manner. You can do this by suggesting you have seen a dramatic change in his behavior. If this doesn't work, you might have to take the bull by the horns and be a bit more straightforward.\r\n\r\nEither way, your goal is to get your son comfortable with the notion of getting help. Even when an intervention gets confrontational, you'll still want it to end with a trip to a top drug and alcohol addiction treatment center like Beaches Recovery.\r\nTreatment for Adolescents and Teenagers at Beaches Recovery\r\nBecause Beaches Recovery treatment center offers custom treatment programs, we can easily adapt our treatment methodologies for adolescents and teenagers.
