Raising a child is no small feat. Regardless of how many self-help books you read on the joys of parenting, how many online seminars you watch or how well-equipped you think you are, you are inevitably going to run into a range of unanticipated challenges along the way. One of these challenges comes during young adulthood, when your child could be introduced to a range of chemical substances by their peers. It is not uncommon for adolescents and young adults to experiment with alcohol, marijuana and other commonly used and readily available substances. If you have a child nearing this age, you may have already sat them down for a talk.
At Immersion Recovery Center we know no matter how much energy you put into prevention, your children are their own people and they are going to make their own decisions regardless. The good news is, the situation is not entirely out of your hands. There are steps you can take to ensure that recreational substance use and experimentation never gets out of control. If you are dealing with a child who has developed a substance use disorder, there are also many ways to help. At Immersion Recovery Center we offer age-specific programming for younger adults who are struggling with alcoholism or drug addiction.
