3 The signs and behaviors listed below are often found with drug use. However, if your youth shows the following signs, it does not always mean that he or she is using drugs. Adolescence is a stressful time, and these signs could be due to other issues besides drug use. If you think your youth might be using drugs, you may want to talk to a treatment professional (See pages 8-10 for available providers). They will be able to give you more information and possibly recommend an assessment. Physical Signs Loss of appetite, and changes in eating habits Slowed or staggering Physical walk Poor Physical Signs coordination Can t sleep Red, watery eyes Smell of substance on breath, body or clothes Extremely overactive Needle marks on arms, feet or legs Hacking cough Behavioral Signs Change in overall attitude or personality without a cause Quick change in friends or new hangouts Doesn t want to talk about new friends Drop in grades at school Loss of interest in family, friends, and usual hobbies Difficulty paying attention Lack of motivation, energy, and self-esteem Moodiness or irritability Paranoia High need for privacy Constant Dishonesty Secretive or suspicious behavior Friends are known drug users

4 The following are some common concerns and questions that many people have when calling a substance abuse treatment provider. Remember, it is your right to call and simply ask questions. In the event that your concerns are not discussed in this following section, choose a provider from the list we have given you and call them to discuss your questions, or call the Drug / Alcohol Help line at (206) , (Sunday Saturday, 8 am to 10 pm), or Youth are referred to treatment by parents, schools, and the legal system. To get your youth help, you will need to call the Drug / Alcohol Help line; or a treatment provider directly; or if applicable the DSHS CSO at (206) They will ask you information about your youth and their drug use. You will also be asked to go to the treatment center for an assessment. An assessment will determine what types of services will help your family the most and what payment options will cover treatment. All treatment programs are different. At an inpatient treatment program, your youth stays at the treatment facility with other youth until the program is completed. At outpatient programs, your youth stays at your home and will be required to go to the treatment center and receive service weekly. Again, each program is different, but most have goals that your youth must reach to have a healthy, drug free lifestyle. Some treatment programs offer services free of charge. Most treatment programs offer a wide variety of payment options such as medical coupons, private insurance, or sliding scale fees. This will be an important question for you to ask a specific provider. This is a very common question. Many treatment centers do offer some form of transportation to get your youth to and from the treatment center. Many other agencies are located on bus lines or are within walking distance. Again, this will be an important question for you to ask a specific provider.

5 You do not have to get involved, but you may be encouraged to because it can help with treatment. For example, parental involvement and a household free from drug use helps a youth succeed with a drug free life. By getting involved, you are showing the support and care that helps young people say no to drugs. Did You Know? Youth between the ages of 12 and 17 say that drugs are the most important problem they face If you do not have insurance, there are other options. If your youth is younger than 19 and is accepted into an inpatient drug treatment program, Washington State will give medical coupons to pay for treatment. Also, many outpatient facilities accept medical coupons, offer a sliding scale, or offer services for free. Did You Know? Nearly a third of all eighth graders in King County have drunk alcohol The length of treatment will depend on the type of program. However, it is common for treatment to last several months and sometimes up to 2 years. This time also depends on how fast someone can reach all of the goals set by a program.

9 Adolescence and the teenage years are a stressful time for youth, which often includes the pressure to use drugs. However, there are ways to help support your youth to make healthy decisions. Parental influence is a large reason why youth do not use drugs. A strong, open connection between youth and parent helps keep youth free from drugs. The tips listed below might help you in supporting your youth. 1. Talk with your youth - If you don t want them to use drugs, tell them. 2. Teach your youth to choose friends wisely - Let them know that hanging out with other friends who do drugs is dangerous. Also, get to know who your youth s friends are. 3. Be a positive role model - If you don t want your youth to use drugs, then provide a safe, drug-free home. 4. Create rules - If you don t want your youth to use drugs, tell them. Make sure there are consequences for their behavior if the rules are broken. 5. Keep in touch with your youth - If your youth is going out with friends, ask where they are going, who they will be with, and what they will be doing. Also, ask that your youth checks in with you periodically throughout the night. Setting Expectations Try this quiz to see if you are setting proper rules and expectations for your youth. Have you told your youth that you expect them to avoid all drug use? Yes or No? Have you discussed and set rules for your youth? Yes or No? Do you have specific consequences for your youth if they break the rules Yes or No? Did you involve your youth in the rule setting discussion? Yes or No?

10 When you are seeking treatment for your youth, treatment providers understand your concerns. By thinking about the following information, you can prepare yourself for the types of questions providers may ask. How long do you think your youth has been using drugs? Why do you think your youth is using drugs? Has the youth been diagnosed with a mental illness? What is the youth s family history like? Are the caregivers divorced or separated? Do family members get along with each other? Is there a family history of drug use? What is the youth s school history like? Are they failing? Do they attend school regularly? Do they have problems at school?
