Asked: 2018-05-30 03:12:58
My kid has always had a good attitude and listened if I asked anything of him. He is a teenager now and will not for the life of him comply to anything I request of him, which leds me to believe he is using drugs. How do I know?

This can be a particularly tricky subject. teenagers are rebellious to some degree, and many of them go through major personality changes as their becoming adults. This can lead to behavioral issues, and often resolves itself early adulthood. It’s important to have an honest line of communication open with your child about drugs and the dangers of addiction.

If you’ve noticed major behavioral changes and impulsive behaviors, you may want to ask your child to take a store-bought drug test. These can be purchased at any major pharmacy and are fairly accurate. If they refuse the drug test or their behavior gets worse, it may be time to seek professional help.
