EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO PREVENT YOUR CHILD FROM GETTING HOOKED—AND HOW TO HELP ONE WHO ALREADY IS
 
Substance abuse can happen in any family, to any teenager. But it can be prevented and stopped before tragic consequences result. The critical deterrent is knowledge, pure and simple.
 
Written by a chemical dependency counselor who has had years of experience working with emotionally disturbed teenagers, Kids, Alcohol & Drugs provides the knowledge you need. Ruth Maxwell offers hope, practical advice, and workable solutions that will teach you how to:
 
• Recognize denial—and how it can stop you from seeing the reality of drug abuse in your home
• Help your child deal with the unique pressures of adolescence from school, home life, and peer group
• Learn what chemicals your teen might be using—and how they affect him or her
• Determine the best form of treatment, incorporating both your teenager’s needs and your own
 
“Real support for parents. We especially liked the differentiation between cooperative kids who need help and non-cooperative kids needing help, as well as the distinction between parents who are helpful and those who are considered co-dependent. We will recommend Kids, Alcohol & Drugs to our Toughlove parents.”—Phyllis and David York, founders of Toughlove
 
“With skill, insight, and empathy, Ruth Maxwell tackles one of the most insidious problems of our time so that parents can start their children—and themselves—on the road to recovery.”—Joyce Vedral, Ph.D., author of My Teenager Is Driving Me Crazy
