At Touchstone Recovery Center, we work with adolescents struggling with substance abuse and having trouble getting their life back on track. If you suspect your teen is struggling and needs the help of a professional, our compassionate and knowledgeable staff is here to provide guidance. It can be challenging to understand the signs of drug addiction if you are unsure. We are here to act as a resource and provide insight into what substance abuse and addiction can look like so you can determine it and take the following steps. There are several signs and indicators that a teen is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction.
