Understanding and Preventing Adolescent Drug Use

Understanding and Preventing
Adolescent Drug Use

By Elizabeth Ruth Skoglund, M.A.
and Bruce Narramore, Ph.D.

One afternoon Mike drank several bottles of beer and swallowed a couple of aspirin and Librium. Later in the day he took his girl friend Sue to a park where they both smoked marijuana. Then rather suddenly, Mike started to get high.

hxHe saw his girl friend become a strange, grotesque creature, distorted and ugly. He began to panic. He was even afraid of Sue! “Help me!” he pleaded with her, while at the same time he warned her to “stay away.” Then in his eyes the portable CD player he had gotten for Christmas began to dance across the lawn and his peripheral vision was gone.

By this time Sue was thoroughly confused. At first she did not believe Mike. Yet there he was, claiming to be hallucinating. “Come on, stop messing with me,” she said. And then, “I’m frightened, maybe we should get help.”



Psychology for Living provides helpful information on Christian counseling, Christian psychology, dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression, codependency and many other psychological disorders that can be found here on the Narramore Christian Foundation website.
