Elements Alerts Parents about Rise in "Study Drug" Abuse and How to Recognize Withdrawal Symptoms from ADHD Medications when College Students Return Home

Promises Treatment Centers | June 21, 2011

Elements Behavioral Health warns parents that more and more college students are abusing study drugs and provides information on how to recognize withdrawal symptoms and signs of addiction when their children return home for the summer. Many college students are exposed to illicit drug use and to prescription drug abuse while they are away at school, which can lead to risky behavior, injury, disease, addiction, and even death.


Domestic Violence - The Hidden Side Of Substance Abuse

Addidtion Treatment Magazine | June 20, 2011

Parents: Health Risk for Teens in Lazy Cakes and Bath Salts

Elements Behavioral Health | June 20, 2011

As summer approaches and children are out of school, parents should take the time to warn kids about the dangers of legal "drugs" that are for sale and readily available. These include bath salts, which are anything but safe, as well as a product called Lazy Cakes.

Both are legally for sale at convenience stores, truck stops and smoke shops in many states. But just because they can be sold doesn't mean that they are safe to use - especially for children.
