Risk Factors of Adolescent Substance Abuse

Drug and alcohol abuse has to begin somewhere. For many, things that occur during the adolescent years are the cause of their addictions. These factors can be the result of familial and social environments as well as the individual’s temperament.

Childhood mistreatment, emotional or physical abuse, neglect, bullying and peer pressure are all likely causes of early substance abuse. An individual’s mental state can also be a factor— ADHD, depression and anxiety have all been linked to higher rates of addiction.

Becoming educated on these causes is essential to the dual diagnosis and treatment options that are available at drug rehab centers in Los Angeles and elsewhere. Learn more about the risk factors associated with adolescent substance abuse below.
