With the rise of substance misuse nationwide, parents may be concerned about their teens engaging in illicit drug use. As much as parents might think their teens wouldn’t participate in such activities, drug misuse can affect people of all ages.
In fact, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health showed that one of the main risks for young people is prescription drug misuse. Teens have taken the proper use of prescriptions and created a dangerous game out of it by organizing “Skittles parties.” If you’re thinking about the candy, Skittles, think again. This type of party is no child’s play and will lead to something far worse than a sugar buzz.
