Addiction

Kids & Teens

There are many reasons a young person may start using drugs and alcohol such as peer pressure, to cope with difficult situations, or because they are curious. This can quickly turn into a problem that leads to dependence on drugs or alcohol. Finding out that your child is using drugs can be very scary. At CODAC, our staff are experienced in working with young people who are using drugs and alcohol and will work with them to address what’s going on in their life. They will learn healthy ways of coping and communicating. Tools are provided for the whole family so that everyone involved can be supportive of a healthy and productive life for their child.
