Find a Residential Treatment Center for Adolescent Drug Addiction
- Rebellion – wayward children often smoke just to show that they are free from family rules and norms.
- Curiosity – your child has probably seen others smoke. He or she has seen adverts on TV saying that smoking or drinking is bad. Out of curiosity, they may decide to try out the drug.
- Thrill seeking – if these kids already know that certain substances can alter consciousness enabling them to “enjoy” certain activities, they will be tempted to always use such drugs.
- Escape from situations – most kids, especially those who have tried a specific drug to escape from pain or a stressor in the past, will often go back to that drug to induce a relaxed feeling.
- Learning from adults – a number of teens drink or smoke because they see adults, including their parents, guardians or visiting friends, smoking.
- Many kids also abuse drugs out of peer pressure
