How do I talk to my teen about substance use?arrow icon

Having an open and honest conversation with your teenager about substance can be challenging, but it’s an essential step to support a sober and healthy future for your teen. Here are some tips to help guide your discussion:

  • Choose the Right Time and Place: Find a calm and private setting where both of you can talk without distractions or interruptions.
  • Express Care and Concern: Begin the conversation by expressing your concern for their well-being. Let them know that you love and support them, and that seeking more support or treatment is an act of love and care.
  • Be Non-Judgmental: Avoid blaming or criticizing your teen. Instead, focus on understanding their struggles and empathizing with their challenges and goals.
  • Share Observations: Gently discuss the behaviors and changes you’ve noticed that indicate a potential issue with substance use. This helps your teen understand that you’re aware of their struggles and genuinely want to help.
  • Educate Yourself and Your Teen: Research together about substance use disorders, support and treatment options, and the benefits of professional help. This will enable you to have an informed conversation and address your teen’s concerns.
  • Listen and Validate Feelings: Give your teen the space to express their thoughts, fears, and reservations. Listen actively, validate their feelings, and reassure them that getting help is a positive step towards a healthier future.
  • Offer Support: Let your teen know that you’ll be there for them. Emphasize that sobriety and recovery are a team effort; together, you will navigate the challenges and celebrate their successes.
