Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles
is participating in Recovery Month 2009
, in part, with articles about recovery during the month of September. Most individuals suffering from alcoholism
and drug addiction
begin their recovery with alcohol and drug treatment
. So it is our pleasure to help bring awareness to the general public about the benefits of recovery to individuals, their families
, and everyone with whom they interact.
Adolescent alcohol and drug treatment
does not end when a patient completes a program. The entire family needs to continue recovery
through support groups, and by working to make changes in the home. Many parents will run into trust issues during this time, and find it difficult to keep drugs out of their households.
Recovery is a daily process. Families join their teens in recovery by working on their own co-dependencies in support groups. Any family affected by drug addiction would benefit with this course of action. But the teen addiction recovery process brings another element in that parents feel responsible if drugs re-enter the home.
Advancements in technology have made it difficult to maintain a drug-free home. It is very easy for a teen to purchase drugs over the internet at online pharmacies
. But that’s not all. There is a growing list of sites that not only promote drug use as healthy, but also “educate” visitors about lesser known drugs and how to obtain them. These sites actually promote the sharing of experiences with substances that can cause serious damage or death.
Until now, web monitoring software and services have targeted pornography. WebSafe plans to change that trend. This new website offers services and software that aim to prevent teens from using home computers to reach sites that sell drugs or discuss use. The services reach far beyond these and include the ability for parents to video conference with each other and get expert advice from professionals.
The WebSafe website
requires free registration to join. Some information about the site’s purpose is below, followed by the link. Families impacted by teen drug abuse
can certainly benefit from the resources that are now available, making long-term recovery possible for their children.

Managing the problems of addiction is complex. We have introduced the LIFEGUARD product as a first step in our creation of a broad community of consumers and professionals exploring the challenges of substance abuse. And while we recognize that user control software is not for everyone, we hope that you will join with us and become a vocal member of a community of concerned individuals that want to help each other understand and manage this complicated and chronic disease.
It’s time to use the web for what it does best – connect people, information and institutions – which we think our collection of information services will allow you to do. Our RESOURCES service is a starting point and one of the nmost basic things we will be bringing to our growing community membership.
