Drug Abuse Poems

Poems by Teens about Drug Abuse

Teens approach drugs with the same intensity and desperation with which they approach everything else. Many teens have a sense that they are immortal and that nothing that they do will have a lasting effect. Unfortunately, many find themselves struggling with addiction their whole lives. When a friend becomes an addict, you may be left wondering what to do. Some options are confronting them about entering treatment or trying to form an intervention of close friends. The truth is that is that a person may have to hit rock bottom before they are ready to be treated.
