When You Suspect Your Kid has a Substance Abuse Problem

7 ways to approach your child if you think he or she uses drugs or alcohol.
I recently worked with a mother who was struggling with the suspicion that her teenaged son was abusing drugs and alcohol.  As she expressed her concerns in a therapy session, it was understandable that she kept vacillating between anger, fear, and denial.  One of the scariest realizations for a parent to face is the possibility that the changes they observe in their child’s moods, academic performance, physical appearance, choice of friends, thoughts, and behaviors could be due to substance abuse.  It’s human nature to hope that minimizing or denying a problem can somehow make it go away.  But parental radar is often quite accurate. I’ve worked with many mothers and fathers over the years who have said, “I know my kid. And I know when something is wrong with him or her.”  The question I am often asked, and the one parents seem to grapple with is, “What should I do with my suspicions?”

My teenager niece was a drug addict. She used to take heavy dozes. Was not happy to see her bad condition so talked to her and took her to addiction counseling Virginia center and counselled her take treatment there. After taking treatment for few months she was very happy to live a normal life again.

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17.

------------------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
