Warning signs of back to school drug use

HOUSTON, TEXAS (August03, 2018)

About two-thirds of students have tried alcohol by 12th grade. About half of ninth through 12th grade students reported ever having used marijuana and 4 in 10 say they've tried cigarettes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Prevention specialist with the Lovett Center, Xavier Barron, said one of the early signs parents can watch for is lying. “They said they would be here, but instead they're there. They said they would do this,” Barron listed examples, “Things that are kind of funny that aren't adding up. Those are indicators that something that's not supposed to be happening is happening.” Barron also recommends Memorial Hermann PaRC and the Menninger Clinic
