Drug addiction treatment is possible. Prevention and education efforts aimed specifically at teens and young adults and between parents families neighborhoods and the media can all be very effective in decreasing drug abuse. Parents and schools should take a look at what they teach their students about drugs especially about the negative aspects of using them. The more that people know about the effects of drug use on the body and the mind of teenagers the better prepared they will be to stop them from doing it in the first place.

If they do choose to get help there should be ways to help them with their drug dependency problem.
