MAKING A CHANGE, ONE KID AT A TIMEAddicted Kids; Our lost generation Logo

Too often we look at teen addicts as bad kids whose lack of motivation get them into their predicament—and keeps them there. But research shows that addiction is more like a disease, not a lack of willpower. So, what can we do to prevent teen addiction, and how can we help young adults already suffering from substance abuse?

In Teen Addiction, husband-and-wife team Dr. Ronald P. Santasiero and Dr. Cherie Santasiero share their personal and professional insights from years of treating young drug addicts, using traditional and holistic medicine.

Writing to educate and encourage parents, educators, and health care professionals, their essential resource guide offers in-depth scholarly information as well as personal stories. They debunk myths; clarify the difference between addiction, dependence, tolerance, and abuse; answer how much genetics, as well as emotional and conduct disorders, can contribute to addiction; and much more.

If our society doesn’t start addressing this epidemic of teen addiction soon, we will lose a significant portion of our next generation.

Thankfully, there’s good news: with awareness and compassion we can take the first steps toward a hopeful future for our teens. This book will help you start the journey.
