If you think or know that your child is using drugs, act immediately! Waiting will only aggravate the problem.

Most adults acknowledge that drug experimentation by teens is risky and can lead to serious trouble. But some say "it's only cannabis", or "it's only alcohol", or "it’s a rite of passage".

The world has changed, and so have the drugs. In facts, the cannabis of today is stronger than ever before. And kids are using drugs and alcohol at a much younger age, when their bodies and brains are still.

Experimentation, even with cannabis can also lead to addiction and can lead to accidents, legal problems and serious health problems.

Not everyone progresses from use to abuse to addiction, but it is a dangerous road, and there is no way to know who will develop a problem and who won't.

If you are at all concerned about your child - or even just have a bad feeling - you can and should intervene by:


Restoring the dialog, by starting a conversation with your child, ideally in the presence of your spouse even if you are separate.

Asking of assistance near professionals, in particular parent associations. They will be able to guide you to adopt suitable atitude.


Expressing your concern for its future, your determination not "to drop it".

  Let your child tell itself, express his fears, his anguishes, his problems.
