Drug Rehab Centers for Troubled Girls in Washington
Parents searching for drug rehab centers for troubled girls in Washington understand that not only can alcohol affect their teens mind and body in unpredictable ways, but their teen girl lacks the proper judgment and coping skills to handle drugs or alcohol wisely. Alcohol is a drug, the same as cocaine and marijuana, and, for many of our troubled girls, alcohol is the number one drug of choice. In fact, American teens use alcohol more frequently and more
heavily than all other drugs combined.
While some parents may feel relieved that it is only drinking, it is important for parent to understand that alcohol is a powerful, mood-altering drug. Some of the catastrophic results of teen drinking include:
Significant brain development continues through adolescents. Heavy alcohol use can damage brain function in adolescents, causing irreversible damage. Alcohol-related traffic accidents are a major cause of death or permanent disability and impairment among teens. Alcohol use can also be linked to the deaths of young people by drowning, fire, suicide and homicide.
Teens that use alcohol are more likely to become sexually active at an earlier age than those of their sober counterparts. Teen girls are more apt to have sexual intercourse more often, and to have unprotected sex more than teens that do not drink. Young people who drink are more likely than others, to be victims of a violent crime, including rape, aggravated assault, and robbery. Teen girls who drink are more likely to have problems with school work and school truancy. An child who begins drinking as a young teenager is four times more likely to become alcohol dependent than someone who waits until adulthood to use alcohol.
The message is this: Alcohol use is very risky business for young people. And the longer your daughter delays using alcohol, the less likely she is to develop long term problems.
