This blog is for young people and adults alike. As a result of working with many, many teens and college age kids I get to hear about their social lives and use of recreational drugs and I hear about a few specific substances over and over again…and no, alcohol is not one of them. Believe it or not, alcohol tends to be last on the list these days. The most common drugs of choice that I hear about amongst young people today are marijuana, ecstasy, and benzodiazepines. Alcohol, prescription drugs, and marijuana are the most reported for adults. Alcohol, drugs, and medications are serious substances that produce chemical interactions in your brain and body, resulting in a multitude of effects. If you're going to use them or if your child is using them, it's good to know what they do to a body.
