Top Causes for Adolescent Drug Use
Low Self-Esteem: Every teen feels the inner need to be accepted by their peers. The need to have approval of others and be liked in the eyes of their peers can drive adolescents to drug use.
Easy Access: Nowadays drugs are extremely easy to get and this ease of access can draw adolescents in. Adolescents have stated that drugs like marijuana and prescription pills are extremely easy to find, but they are also able to find other drugs like meth and heroin.
Miscommunication Regarding Dangers of Drug Use: Most adolescents that use drugs have stated that they were misinformed about the dangers drugs hold. Almost half of adolescents feel that there is absolutely no danger in trying a drug once or twice, that they will not get addicted or harmed.
Self-Medication: During adolescence, depression and unhappiness are extremely common. One leading cause of drug use is for the adolescent to self-medicate their problems in order to attempt to become happier.
Stress: Middle school and high school are extremely stressful years for a growing child. The need to be socially accepted by others, seeking approval from parents and teachers, as well as the pressure to do well in academics and athletics cause a lot of stress on adolescents which can lead to drug use.
