As an ER nurse I’ve seen more than my fair share of people who are battling with drug and alcohol addictions. While it’s bad enough to see adults who have addictions that in many cases have pretty much ruined their lives and their health, it’s even worse when I’ve had to care for a teenager with an addiction problem.
As you can imagine, since I work in the emergency department many of the these kids that come in with symptoms of alcohol or drug abuse have actually taken it too far and have over dosed. They are in life threatening conditions.
Some times the parents of these kids knew what was happening to their child but didn’t know where to turn for help or even tried to manage the problem in their own way at home. In a few cases the parents hadn’t realized that their child was in trouble until their kid ended up in the ER.
It’s for these reasons that I’m pleased to tell you about the Echo Malibu clinic. They specialize in teen drug rehab. They give these adolescents the highest quality professional care available, and also provide 24 hour support for the families of these children since addiction affects the whole family, not just the person with the problem.
If you suspect that your child or someone you knows child has an addiction problem please seek help through a clinic such as the Echo Malibu clinic before it’s too late.
