Helping Teens Through Turbulence

“For many teens what starts off as ‘just a phase’ or ‘experimenting’ quickly escalates to a lifelong struggle with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health problems.  Early and effective treatment is available, and parents, teachers, pastors and counselors who work with teens are key to leading them to seek help.”
