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

A –  In our society today, behavioral or academic issues in teenagers most often coincide with some level of substance abuse, which can be hidden from parents.  Yet, it may have a profound effect on your son’s attitude, and it may be the main reason for his inappropriate behavior.   In reality, it can take months away from drugs (even alcohol or marijuana) for your son to begin demonstrating better attitudes, decision making, and impulse control.

With some substances, addictions can arise from even one use; they must be addressed before they become a life-long problem.  Lakeside Academy offers the best opportunity for overall recovery, by allowing teen boys to truly get their motivations and lives turned around and back on the right track.
