What does alcohol abuse do to a teenager's brain?

24/7 Helpline 888-242-7730

Teen drug and alcohol abuse can be especially unhealthy. During your teen years, your brain is still developing, which means you are extra vulnerable to the damage that drugs and alcohol can cause. The symptoms of drug and alcohol abuse are the direct result of the damage that drinking can cause.

Alcohol affects many areas of the brain, which is why drinking can make you experience slurred speech, poor judgement, confusion, slow reaction times, burry vision, and poor body coordination. Again, keep in mind that your teenage brain is still developing, which means that the damage that these effects can cause will be even worse.

Alcohol can damage areas of the brain related to learning and memory, and these effects can be particularly bad for teens. Drinking during your younger years can cause you to have problems with creating memories or recalling information for the rest of your life.

Drinking can also damage areas of the brain related to planning, judgement, making decisions, controlling your impulses, and language. These brain areas have been found to actually be smaller in teens who drink!

Perhaps the scariest part of this is that we don’t know how much alcohol it takes to cause these changes. Teenage drug addicts can damage their bodies in many ways, which is why it is so important to seek help. If you or someone you love needs help with a drinking or drug problem, we’re here for you. Call 1-877-698-6170 to talk with a treatment support specialist about finding the best teen addiction treatment.

Barangay San Juan, Laur, Nueva Ecija
February 13, 2019

Reaffirming his campaign to end the drug-related incidence in the country, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte led the inauguration of the Moscati Meadows Residential Treatment Facility (MMRTF) in Laur, Nueva Ecija.

In his speech, the President acknowledged the role of the new treatment facility in bringing back the lives of the drug dependents to normalcy. He also reiterated the ill effects of drug abuse, citing that aside from deteriorating the mind and body, it also destroys the lives and families of the drug abusers.

“By complementing traditional rehabilitation treatment with non-medical treatment methods such as group and individual therapy sessions, meditation, and horticulture and farm animal therapy, you will not just provide holistic care to the patients, but will also empower them to become effective drug and alcohol counselors to their peers who suffer the same predicament,” President Duterte said.

“By reforming drug dependents, we do not only effectively combat this scourge, but also give our kababayans a chance to start productive lives anew with their families and loved ones,” he added.

With a professional team of specialists in world-class drug and alcohol addiction treatment manning the one-hectare facility, the MMRTF offers various treatment methods used in the United States of America (USA) to provide a six-month holistic rehabilitation program for its patients who are victims of drug and alcohol addiction in the country.
