Signs of Substance Abuse in Teens

There are many signs of substance use in teens, but most can be mistaken for “being a teen”. That is why it is important to seek help when you believe a teen is struggling with substance use. A clinician at Charis Behavioral Health can provide an assessment of your child to identify potential substance use. Here are the signs to look for:

  • Loss of interest in activities the teen used to enjoy

  • Sleeping more than usual

  • Acting apathetic, irritable, or angry

The Impact of Teen Drug & Alcohol Abuse

There are many risks associated with teen substance use such as:
  • Negative impact on development, specifically brain development

  • Consequences of other risky behaviors associated with substance use

  • Contribute to the development of adult health risk factors
