So many families are torn apart by drug and alcohol abuse, and many teens are right at the center of it being the ones struggling with the problems. For most teens, getting help is not always a viable option and does not happen right away as it should. It normally starts with just experimenting with a drug and can lead to regular abuse of it. The state of Missouri has over 10 different treatment facilities available to teens. These various forms of treatment include residential and outpatient help, counseling, group homes, and detox. The right help is available in the area and your loved one can be saved.

WHAT CAUSES TEENS TO ABUSE PRESCRIPTION DRUGS?

Prescription-drug abuse and dependence can happen very easily, whether an adolescent is given pain medications, or finds their parent's drugs a dependency can happen quite easily. Not all prescription drugs are addictive and considered narcotics, but some can be dangerously addictive. It is important that parents ensure their medications are out of reach, and their son or daughter does not get caught up with unnecessary prescriptions.

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed.

This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
