 Drug and Alcohol Information
Does someone you know need help with alcohol or drug abuse? How can you tell if someone is using drugs?  It is difficult because changes in mood or attitudes, unusual temper outbursts, changes in sleeping habits, hobbies or other interests are common in teens. Changes often signal that something troubling is possibly going on that may involve alcohol or drugs. If you discover that someone you know has a drug problem they should contact their family physician, the Drug Education Council, school councelor just to name a few.
