Could Your Teen Be Struggling with Substance Abuse?

Many of today’s teens are abusing substances without their parents’ knowledge. Join us on today’s podcast as we chat with Richard Capriola, author of The Addicted Child. Richard has been an addictions counselor for more than two decades. On the podcast he explains to us the difference between adolescent and adult addiction. We also discuss how drugs affect the teenage brain and how to tell if your child may be abusing substances.

Richard also provides hope for desperate and struggling parents. He shares what tests and assessments to look for and how to find resources to help your family.
