Teenagers, whom we are considering as a future builder of nation, are busy in experiment with a variety of activities and substances. Unfortunately, this experimentation can lead to substance abuse and addiction. Statistics show that drug abuse is a growing problem among teens. Without treatment, the effects of drug abuse on teens can lead to serious consequences now and well into adulthood. And the treatment is done only if parents are well known about their children’s habit. Most of the parents may not know about their children’s harmful habits. There are manysymptoms of drug abuse, but some of the most common signs yourteen is abusing drugs are poor grades, suspension, violent behavior, depression, loss of interest in favorite activities, missing money, poor hygiene,   etc. The teens are almost aware about all these habits. The only thing that is forcing them for these habits is bad company. Each and every individual’s behavior and activities is affected by his/her company. And after involving in those habits, they gradually start becoming addicts. Then, they are afraid of nothing and committing crimes are nothing for them. Thus, they become the real problem to the society.
