I encourage you to spend time reviewing the information found on these links. I see adolescents who have misused prescribed medications when they have presented in the practices where I have worked as a college counselor, public school counselor, medical practice therapist and social worker, and now in private practice. If you or someone you know may believe a teen is misusing medications, contact your family physician, pediatrician, or local mental health professional for guidance and direction.

As a mental health professional and former Substance Abuse Prevention Special Project Director, education is essential. Many risks are evident in today’s adolescent culture.
