For Parents - What Kids Think About Drugs and What To Do About It   PDF  Print  Email 

Can you recall your thoughts about alcohol and other drugs when you were a child?

Were you curious about drinking, because the "cool" kids drank?

Were you trying to fit in? Would you have felt left out had you not participated?

Or did it seem impossible to get close to that special boy or girl without being involved with the "drug scene"?

Kids today face similar situations.

Even if your child is in a private school, this does not keep them away from others who use drugs/alcohol.

Moreover, with TV, movies and the Internet, they are exposed to much more information than we were.

Here are some interesting survey results that shed light on kids' awareness of today's drug problem:
· 62 percent say more kids are using marijuana at school than in the past;
· 57 percent believe most people will try marijuana sometime;
· 51 percent feel many rock, rap and movie/TV stars make drugs seem "cool";
· 63 percent believe there will always be drugs in their communities.

This last one is alarming!

Over half the kids surveyed think drugs are here to stay!

More........

That said, what can you do to help your child to avoid going down the dark path of drug use and what tools can we provide to help them?

News and Topics of Interest
The abuse of prescription drugs has increased dramatically in recent years, with marked increases in the abuse of some of the online pharmacies' best-selling products, such as narcotic painkillers and anxiety drugs like Valium. Hydrocodone, the active ingredient in Vicodin, Lortab and Lorcet, seems to have seen the biggest jump in usage. In its annual drug use survey, the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration found prescription drugs were second in popularity only to marijuana among substance abusers last year. In 2002, some 6.2 million Americans - 2.6 percent of the population 12 and over - were nonmedical users of prescription drugs, meaning they had abused drugs at least once in the month before taking part in the SAMHSA survey.
