How can I tell if my child is using drugs?
It can be hard to tell the difference between signs of drug use and normal teenage changes such as being moody, sleeping late, changing friends. As a parent you will know your own teenager and notice changes in their behaviour.
Some of these may indicate drug use:
- Sudden changes in mood
- Losing interest in things they used to enjoy
- Money going missing
- Aggressive or irritable behaviour
- Being secretive
- Finding unusual objects, such as powders, tablets, scorched tinfoil, cigarette papers
- Burns on clothes
