Help for Parents
Cutting: If your young person is cutting, how did it start? Cutting often begins on an impulse. It’s not something the person thinks about ahead of time. It starts when something’s really upsetting and they don’t know how to talk about it or what to do. But they can’t get their mind off feeling upset, and their body has this knot of emotional pain. Then, they cut themselves to release the pain.
Why Are Teens Using?: When coping with your young person’s drug and alcohol addiction, acceptance is a great tool. By accepting that your child is in the throes of the disease of addiction and there is no other way out than through, you can find your way. Life is what it is, filled with joy, skepticism, times of great hope, and also dark times filled with deep sorrow. Learn to embrace the process that you have been thrust into.
