What Adults Need to Know About Kids and Substance Use
Dealing With Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other DrugsBook - 2011
Putting a difficult situation in perspective, this hands-on guide explains why youth abuse drugs, how to identify signs of substance abuse, and how to deal with the difficulties of this destructive behavior. This book includes a thorough list of the substances youth are most likely to abuse?including over-the-counter drugs and inhalants?and reproducible handouts that itemize the effects of each drug. Several scenarios are discussed, such as when a student admits to using drugs; when a student says a friend, sibling, or parent uses drugs; when to call a social worker; and when to call law enforcement. Teachers, counselors, and parents can all benefit from the helpful advice in this realistic look at working with kids and drugs in the 21st century.
