WE KEND ';AVINGI00 l THIS AD GOOD THRU MONDAY, AUG. 14, 1989 weekender NEWS - A 1989 Harlan EMPLOYEE oWNED Drug problem begins at age 12 rs charity horse show The average age for a teen to try or start using.dru, gs. is 12-13. That means m junior high school. Many parents refuse to accept that their children would try drugs or have such distant relation- ships with their teens that they fail to see it. We do not even talk openly about how many car accidents we see re- lated to alcohol and other drug use. As long as parents and society denies drug use by our children, we will continue to see unlucky ones die, destroy their futures, or develop chemical dependency. Kids use for a variety of reasons just like adults includ- ing curiosity, danger, peer pressure, escape, frustration, and boredom. The media and society give messages as well about the pleasures of alcohol use. Alcohol is a drug and it is by far the most widely used and abused drug by children and teens, (as well as adults.) Alcohol and other drug abuse in children/teens may look to adults like other prob- FOOD STORE HARLAN REGULAR $ ,, & DIET P PSI, MT.

Obviously, these symptoms can also be attributed to other potential problems. Consequently, if a parent or other interested party notes possible symptoms and suspects drug abuse, they need to look at getting professional help before the problem(s) in- cruises. The biggest job a parent has is to resist the urge to hide from a possible problem. If a teen is abusin[[ drugs, there will be increasing con- sequences. If a teen is using alcohol or other drugs without evidence of any negative con- sequences, it is still illegal and parents are liable. It can still lead to abuse by teens with inadequate experience and decision making skills. If you suspect your child is using alcohol or other drugs, contactyour local Substance Abuse Counselor to find out more about specific signs and symptoms and available ser- vices within your commu- nity. Children and teens may also seek professional help without parental consent and with total confidentiality. It is not bad or shameful to admit that you or your family may need help. It is shameful to ignore it. If you are concerned about yourself or someone you care about, please contact Midwest Iowa alcohol and Drug Abuse Center in Harlan by calling 755-3161, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For an emergency after hours, call 755-2121 and they will put you in touch with the counselor.
