The medical director at Recovery Associates, Board Certified Adolescent Addictions Psychiatrist Dr. Eduardo Pena, explains how, developmentally, teens in particular are more likely to try new drugs despite the potential risk factors.
He states, “Adolescence is often characterized as a time of risk taking to the point of recklessness.
