Teen is an important developmental step when you go through a number of internal and external changes that affect the physical and mental development and health of a person. Some attempts, especially related substances, are at risk of changing a habit that can create or break one's future. In addition, any major trauma or life-threatening experience can greatly exacerbate natural interest in nature and even push towards drugs as harmful to cope with sudden and frustrating changes. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure effective preventive measures so that one can hope for the best and prepare the worst.
It is now well known fact that people are at increased risk of falling into a cruel cycle of abuse, especially in adolescence. Although a person has a tendency to use drugs is marked at the early stages of adolescence, it may take long until the beginning of adulthood (25 years of age) when the rational part of the teenager fully appreciates.
One of the main reasons for increasing the chances of developing addiction in awareness is how brain function works in adolescents. Although adults think of a prefrontal cortex that is responsible for responding to good judgment, adolescents make decisions with an emotional part of a brain called amygdala. Teenagers are still on the verge of developing a connection between the emotional and decision-making part of the brain.
The early introduction of drug use increases the likelihood that individuals will be addicted to the future. It also causes the brain to synthesize a large amount of dopamine, which is a brain-free substance when rewarded.
As the amount of dopamine continues to increase due to drug use, the brain naturally reduces its own dopamine production to improve recovery. Important research suggests that the changes purchased from adolescence abuse have far more negative mental and physical consequences than in other developmental stages.
Reasons to Encourage Drug Abuse in Adults
Teenagers may develop addiction due to various factors such as sudden change in their environment or other external and biological reasons. Sometimes it can be difficult for young people to move to a new place or change school, move from elementary schools, etc. In addition, equilibrium pressure, especially at the upper secondary level and easy access to drugs, can encourage susceptible teenagers to experiment with drugs or other illegal substances.
This is also because adolescents show unique groups of risk-related behaviors, discover themselves and shape new relationships with peers. This leaves many adolescents open for use in drugs, especially if they have an abuse of drugs. In addition, many adolescents may not fully understand the magnitude of the problem, such as long-term consequences and the true nature of drugs when they abuse or try them. Often they are not aware that even simple use can prove disastrous.
In addition, it has been found that some may believe that taking drugs can improve their sports relationships or allow them to manage by relying on social conditions. Some take medication to lose weight, increase academic performance and increase strength. It may also happen that adolescents start taking medication either after consulting a doctor or not to handle sports injuries and later become addicted to them.
However, the use of the drug, whether postponed or uninformed, interfered in brain areas related to incentives, memory, learning, judgment and behavior. In addition, adolescents who abuse drugs are more likely to have social problems and the family, suffer in academic terms, experience more physical and mental health problems and having problems with law enforcement agencies.
Therefore, "prevention is better than remedy." It is necessary to stop adolescents from experimenting with drugs by spreading awareness, preventing drug abuse, etc. It must be ensured that these youngsters contribute positively to the economy and society and to live a long healthy life by avoiding drugs.
