Adolescent Drug Treatment – Los Angeles

To fully understand the need for adolescent drug treatment in Los Angeles, one must be aware of the magnitude of adolescent drug abuse in Los Angeles.  The drugs teens use today are more powerful than ever, easier to obtain, and are perceived by our youth as being harmless in the long run.

For example, teen prescription drug treatment in Los Angeles is on the rise as a percentage of all admissions to treatment programs.  And although most drug-using teens enter treatment addicted to opioids or benzodiazepines, other drugs, known as Club Drugs, have gained popularity.  If a teen uses small quantities of these drugs, it may go undetected by parents as the outward signs are subtle.

It is also very common for teens to have cell phones with text functions as early as age 12 and even younger.  This makes it especially difficult for parents to know who their adolescent children are communicating with.  Thus, plans for drug use can occur in front of parents without their knowledge.  Teens may begin to feel safe using drugs, and addiction, or even overdose, could be the result.

This is important information for all parents who either suspect or know that teen drug abuse has become a part of their lives.  Indeed, some parents even give the okay to use alcohol or marijuana as long as a promise is made to not drive.  But all too often they discover later that when the teen claimed to be following the rules, they were actually using more or stronger drugs.

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides teen drug treatment in Los Angeles.  We have outpatient, intensive outpatient, and residential programs to fit every need.  We provide teen drug education to schools and onsite.  And we even offer staff-administered drug testing by appointment.

For more information on our adolescent drug treatment programs, please call 888-777-8565 or contact us here.

The information below is from an article posted on Advanceweb.com.  It is critical today that parents arm themselves with information about drugs that are popular with teens, and when they may become more available like ketamine may soon be.

Ketamine shows two distinct personalities, depending on where it is used. In a clinical setting, the patient receiving ketamine is already unconscious and either does not experience or cannot recall any hallucinations. On the street, "people who use it take it while they are conscious to experience the hallucinogenic effects," Friedberg said. The hallucinations are a side effect of the ketamine, which is a second-generation PCP.

Occasionally ketamine is injected for street use. More often, teens evaporate the liquid form in which ketamine is sold on the street and snort the crystals. Overuse in this manner can cause disruptions in consciousness and lead to neuroses or mental disorders. At the same time, Special K can cause tremendous psychological dependence, and there are some reported cases of addiction. Overdoses of ketamine can also lead to heart attacks and strokes.

At a 50 mg dose, ketamine produces a near death experience. At a 100 mg dose, it produces an out of body experience. When ketamine is bought on the street, both dosage and purity come into question. The ingestion of an unknown quantity and purity of ketamine is extremely dangerous, especially if combined with alcohol, Valium, rohypnol or GHB. Ketamine is part of a class of drugs called dissociative anesthetics, a category that includes PCP.
