Understanding teenage struggles with substance abuse and how to get help
It is silent
The screams for help
One seldom hears
But behind the masks
Of happy teens
Lies buried within
There are signs
To watch out for
To heal the wounds
As we grow into teenagers, we come across a number of new things that peak our curiosity. Some of them are drugs, alcohol, mental health, and so on. Our website mainly focuses on how substance abuse has become very common among teenagers and the struggles faced by them in relation to that. There could be numerous reasons as to why would a person get into drugs. There’s ap stereotypical reason that is quite common but often misused, “they want to look cool”.
This website will allow you have a broader perspective on this issue and will bring awareness on drug abuse.
In our research, based on Google form responses you our queries, we arrived at the following conclusion:

3. We felt that parents would find it useful to know about abuse, especially in their vicinity, city our country.

This feedback helped shaped the content of our website and we intend to update it based on feedback.
