Pt 2 of 3, Christopher hosts Richard Capriola, author of “The Addicted Child’s” A Parent’s Guide to Adolescent Substance Abuse”. Mr. Capriola worked with parents who have dealt with substance abuse issues. Mr. Capriola notes an alarming revelation that the number of opiod overdoses and deaths has increased during the pandemic. He believes that we are beginning to see the effect of the pandemic not only on adolescents but on adults as well. CDC has noted that there have been an increase in emergency room visits by grade school children as well as an increase of teen agers who are in need of some type of mental health care. We discuss what’s in the Parents guide. He talks about some of the newest drugs but alcohol and marijuana remain the principle uses. He discusses vaping and the use of substances in vaping. He discusses some assessments that you as a parent may need to get for your child in his book. We close this segment with discussions of types of treatment.
