Parents Universal Resource Experts (Sue Scheff) Inhalant Abuse Among Teens and Pre-teens

Inhalant Abuse is not discussed enough – We as parents, all know about talking to our kids about drugs and sex, but remember – huffing is a serious issue among teens today.  Learn more about it at www.inhalant.org.

Monitoring your child will make your child much less likely to use Inhalants or other drugs.
· Know where your child is at all times, especially after school
· Know your child’s friends
· If you find your child unconscious, or you suspect your child is under the influence of an Inhalant, call 911 immediately.

If you suspect your child might be abusing Inhalants, call the Poison Control Center at   1-800-222-1222; or call the ‘1-800′ number on the label of the product.

According to the Partnership for a Drug-Free America, “if you talk to your kids about the risks of drugs, they are 36% less likely to abuse an Inhalant.” Parents can make a tremendous impact on their kids’ choices by talking to them.
