Teenage Substance USE Treatment Dallas, Texas
Substance use and experimentation has become more challenging with teens now more than ever. While parents often intervene in healthy and positive ways there may be other underlying challenges that prompt professional assistance. BasePoint will work alongside you in identifying the triggers that have contributed to substance use and develop a treatment plan to provide sustainable stability.
Substance use is prevalent in teens and continues to be on the rise. The CDC reports the following statistics on Substance use among Teens:
The guide highlights the most commonly used substances and the extent of the problem, such as
- Alcohol, marijuana, and tobacco are substances most commonly used by adolescents.1
- By 12th grade, about two-thirds of students have tried alcohol.1
- About half of 9th through 12th grade students reported ever having used marijuana.2
- About 4 in 10 9th through 12th grade students reported having tried cigarettes.3
- Among 12th graders, close to 2 in 10 reported using prescription medicine without a prescription.1
Although it is illegal for people under 21 years of age to drink alcohol, the findings show that people from 12 to 20 years of age consume about one-tenth of all alcohol consumed in the United States.
Drug and alcohol use can lead to serious risk factors for teens of all ages as it can trigger mental health issues and have negative consequences now and later in life. Contact BasePoint Academy to get your teen the help and individualized care he or she needs if they have begun experimenting with substances.
