Q – HOW DO I KNOW IF MY SON IS STRUGGLING WITH SUBSTANCE ABUSE?

A – Today, behavioral or academic issues in teenagers most often coincide with some level of substance abuse, which can be hidden from the parent. It can have a profound effect on your boy’s attitudes, and it may be the main reason for inappropriate behavior. Fact is, it can take months away from drugs (even alcohol or marijuana) for your boy to begin having better attitudes and making better judgments. With some substances, addictions can arise from even one use; they must be dealt with before they become a life-long problem. Lakeside offers the best opportunity for overall recovery, allowing boys to truly get their motivations and lives turned around and on the right track again.
