The Top Five Reasons for Teen Drug and Alcohol Addiction\r\n\r\n \tOther People- Peer pressure. Popularity. Fitting in. Impressing crushes. These might seem trivial to adults who have graduated from their teenage years, but for adolescents, this is the real deal. They watch other people use drugs and alcohol in movies, at parties, at home, etc. Whether it\u2019s to impress someone at a party, or to fit in with a group that engages in this behavior, drug and alcohol experimentation is common, available, and rampant.\r\n \tEscape- Being a teenager is confusing, frustrating, and dictated by hormones. It can be a very powerless stage of life, where familial issues, behavior problems, and personal failures dictate feelings and decisions on a daily basis. Oftentimes, escaping from reality seems like the only way to survive, and drugs and alcohol are used to self-medicate.\r\n \tBoredom- Go to school. Do homework. Go to bed. Repeat. Simply put, teenagers are bored. Some teens are looking for something to do that\u2019s \u201cfun\u201d and \u201cexciting\u201d without any real thought of consequences. Hanging out with friends to smoke weed and drink is a temporary fix to their boredom, and often develops into larger scale parties, harder drugs, and more frequent use.\r\n \tRebellion- Teenage years are marked by change. Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual changes often dictate relationships with friends, parents, authority figures, etc. Rebelling against those relationships can be a response to these confusing changes, and often spirals into poor decision making, turning to drugs and alcohol because doing the very things that loved ones disapprove of, is what makes some teenagers feel like they have some control over their lives.\r\n \tLack of Confidence- Drugs and alcohol lower inhibitions. They help teens say what they wish they could say, act the way they wish they could act. Turning to substances for confidence is common, and very dangerous. This temporary fix for confidence constantly needs more to maintain, which is how addiction to these substances develops and causes significant problems.\r\n\r\nIs your teen struggling with a drug and alcohol addiction?
