Results mark 33 percent increase in drug cases over the past five years. As this trend continues, Recovery Associates offers its Adolescent Track so teens can learn how to live without drugs.

Recovery Associates' Teen Drug Rehab Program Offers Hope to Families

Contributing to this sustained trend in teen medicine abuse are the lax attitudes and beliefs of parents and caregivers.

According to a recent study produced by The Partnership at Drugfree.org, one in four teens has misused or abused a prescription drug at least once in their lifetime, a 33 percent increase over the past five years.

The Partnership Attitude Tracking Study, found here http://www.drugfree.org/newsroom/pats-2012, also showed one in eight teens now reports they have taken the stimulants Ritalin or Adderall when it was not prescribed for them at least once in their lifetime. Contributing to this sustained trend in teen medicine abuse are the lax attitudes and beliefs of parents and caregivers.
