The use of smoking mixtures does not leave any obvious marks, such as injecting drugs. But it often leads to mental changes, psychosis, behavioral changes. Parents are capable of recognizing the latter signs and so they send them to psychiatrists and psychotherapists who do not specialize in drug addiction. As a result, the teenager continues to use drugs and receives wrong treatment for a disease that does not exist (as a rule, the psychopharmacotherapy methods are used). This can greatly aggravate the condition of a teenager, as well as trigger and worsen drug addiction.
Many parents can’t even think that their child might be using drugs. However, admitting a problem means you can still get quality help when it's not too late. Are you afraid to offend your child suspecting him of drug use? Are you afraid that without resorting to force you won't be able to convince him that he requires treatment? Then you must consult an experienced addiction specialist and find out how to deal with this situation and get competent help.
