Substance abuse can have some serious and sometimes long term effects on our health. Although there is no age limit for developing addictions to substance abuse, generally, adolescent boys and girls are a very high risk group for substance addiction. There are some strategies to prevent substance addiction amongst teenagers. Teenagers should be emotionally and mentally strong and avoid any companionship forcing them into any kind of substance abuse. If they somehow fall prey to this habit, they should seek medical help as soon as possible. A lot of help is available in the form of highly qualified psychologists, psychiatrists, and de-addiction and rehabilitation programmes to help individuals who have unfortunately succumbed to addiction. Mostly teenagers start substance abuse because of pressures and failure in personal or professional life. Educating and counselling such people to face stresses and challenges and accepting failures as a part of life is of utmost importance. Counselling encourages people to practise healthy habits like playing sports, reading and music, which can help bring them out of addiction.
