Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
A new federal campaign launched in Maryland aimed at educating parents with children ages 9-15 years old. The reason being, statistics show that by age 15, more than 50% of teens will have had at least one alcoholic drink. Which is why the staff at Prominence Treatment Center is looking to help parents of teens with underage drinking.
Early exposure to drinking leads to a greater risk of long-term alcoholism. Therapists at Prominence Treatment Center have seen this damage first-hand, from alcoholics who started well before the legal age of 21.
In a recent blog post, Prominence Treatment Center outlined three actions parents can take to reduce the risk of their teen abusing alcohol. These tips were to be proactive with communication, keep track of your teen’s whereabouts, treat your teen like an adult, and lead by example.
To extend our commitment to helping families with teens, Prominence Treatment Center is offering our free consultations with our intake specialists to discuss your teen’s drinking behavior. We know parents have questions and will want to talk to someone directly, something an advertising campaign can’t offer.
Call us at 877-383-2284 to better understand if your teen has a drinking problem, what you can do to prevent one, or how Prominence Treatment Center can help your teen if a problem has already occurred.
