Workshop Wednesday – Is my child addicted, or just experimenting?
Thinking your child might be using drugs is a very scary thought.
Finding evidence that your child has used drugs is a parent's nightmare. On one hand you want to believe that your child isn’t a drug user – and that this must be his very first time trying drugs – and that someone else bought them, and convinced your child to try it with them.
At the same time there is that very reliable “gut feeling" that tells us we might have a real problem on our hands.
How do you determine if it is just a one-time “experiment” or if there is an addiction? That's a good question and there are many answers. The Phases of Drug Abuse and the 4 Stages of
Addiction are the topics for Saturday’s Parent Workshop.
We will discuss the science and emotional dependency behind addiction and abuse, how to spot it, and tools you can use to help your child recover from addiction.
