Depression is one of the most common effects of teenage drug abuse and it can be the most damaging and last the longest. It can virtually lead to hundreds of other problems in life long past the teen years.
Quite simply, drug abuse and depression can be a never ending cycle feeding the other. Depression will lead to more drug abuse and more drug abuse will lead to more depression. This pattern can be like a speeding train leading to destruction. Can one get off this train? Yes, and we’ve been there and have done that. It’s a wonderful life beyond. Let us show you…
The teen years have been deemed one of the most difficult phases of one’s life. This has to do with changes that occur around us and inside our bodies. As a teen, if we do not have the maturity or the healthy family support to deal with so many changes, we may choose to numb our pain by medicating ourselves with the use of drugs or alcohol.
The effects of teenage drug abuse aren’t only felt by the teen. The effects are also felt by family and friends surrounding the teen and even by neighbours not necessarily associated with the teen but close enough to see the hurt and pain. For example, over 15 years ago I remember a teen down the street who committed suicide the year he began experimenting with drugs. The changes in him made it obvious to us neighbours that drugs were being used. When his life got out of control and he committed suicide, we mourned with the family.
Still today, I think of that young man and still picture his smile and remember hearing his laugh as he walked past my house with friends in his earlier much happier years. What is important and interesting to note is that his suicide sparked a depression within me – one who had no relationship with the teen whatsoever! This is an example of how the effects of teenage drug abuse may be found not only in the teen, his family and his friends - but also in people near but not closely associated with him. Yikes! You see how powerful and damaging this can be.
The effects of teenage drug abuse like depression could be stopped at the source. How’s that? Every kid just wants to be loved and accepted. If every parent, teacher, friend would just ‘love one another’, drug abuse among teens would not be such an issue. Don’t scoff just yet at the simplicity of this. Stop and think for a moment. Think of someone who has really truly loved you unconditionally. When you think of that love, how do you begin to feel? Usually when I think of the good someone has done for me, I want to go out and do the same. If everyone loved generously, praised loudly and lived fully, what would your world look like?
I feel that the effects of teenage drug abuse can be blamed partially for our medical industry. Let me explain. When you go to the doctor with a pain, what does he do for it? You’ve heard the saying, “take two and call me in the morning”. Our doctor’s are perhaps unknowingly teaching us that our bodies need drugs to feel good. But, are our bodies deficient in Prozac and Paxil?
If a teen feels hurt due to change around him or changes occurring in his body, he may become so desperate to take the pain away that eventually the pursuit of drugs may draw him or strongly come to him because of peer pressure. Am I off base here? Or do you catch my concern regarding the effects of teenage drug abuse being indirectly caused by what our doctor’s are teaching us?
If your car isn’t running properly, does your mechanic just look at it to offer a solution or does he lift the hood? Aren’t our bodies more intricate than cars! Shouldn’t we do that with our bodies? Shouldn't we determine if what we are putting into our bodies is what we need to live a healthy, happy life?
