Youth: Alcohol Abuse, Teenage Alcoholism


Joshua, who is 16 years old, used to love playing sports. But since last year, he no longer has any interest in his favorite sport, football. Not only has his attitude about football changed, he has also stopped building model airplanes — something he used to like doing with his dad. He no longer hangs out with his best mate Jack, who he’d been mates with since primary school, or with his other old mates. Now, when one of his new ‘shonky’ mates calls, he always takes the call in his room with the door shut.

Last week, Joshua’s mum got a call from his school for the 3rd time this month: “Joshua was truant again.” Joshua’s grades have also dropped miserably over the past year.

While, like all teens, Joshua had his various moods in the past, nowadays his moods are all over the place like a mad woman’s breakfast. But mostly, he’s either sulking around the house when he’s home (when he comes out of his room); angry with his brother, mum, and dad; or bailing out of the house.

Changes in youth behavior like the ones described above might be due to something other than alcohol abuse or drug addiction. But, in Joshua’s case, he’s been smoking a lot of marijuana, drinking a lot of alcohol, and using ecstasy and methamphetamines. Joshua needs an intervention, perhaps detox, and certainly a rehab. Alcohol and drug abuse is on the rise among Aussie youth. The reasons for teenage drinking and substance abuse are many, e.g., they want to relax, have fun, feel different and be part of a group. What starts out as experimental and recreational drug use can quickly lead to substance abuse, teenage alcoholism, and/or drug addiction. At this stage, rehabilitation is key to getting clean and sober. DARA Drug and Alcohol is a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre that has helped many young people recover from alcohol abuse, alcoholism, drug abuse, and drug addiction.
