Adolescent Treatment Centers Caldwell ID

Teens, searching for acceptance, drink for one of three reasons. Fitting in is a major issue for most teenagers. They feel alone and disassociated. Drinking, they feel, is the way to make them fit in with other teens. While it makes them feel accepted, it can also lead to a more empty feeling. This can, in turn, encourage more drinking and sometimes drug use. However, this can be curbed in most instances.

What Factors Contribute to Teen Drinking?

Shyla Martin

Friday, September 14, 2007 I believe there are many factors that contribute to alcohol problems in teens. While there will always be those in any age group who feel the need to gorge themselves on this potentially harmful liquid, I feel that many teens would choose another route if it were offered to them.

Most teens feel lonely, disillusioned, and disconnected from their peers and the world around them. They don't realize that what they are feeling is normal, that all of their friends feel the same way. They are looking for anything to cling to, to make them feel more normal and mainstream. That is why peer pressure is so volatile.

Teens, searching for acceptance, drink for one of three reasons. Fitting in is a major issue for most teenagers. They feel alone and disassociated.

This can, in turn, encourage more drinking and sometimes drug use. However, this can be curbed in most instances. Getting your teenagers involved in activities outside of school is a big help. Theaters are always looking for volunteers for set and costume production. There are sports, church groups, and many other ways of getting teenagers involved. With involvement comes self-esteem.

Some teenagers feel that their life isn't as good as it should be. They feel abandoned and isolated, and they want to forget about their troubles. Drinking is their way of doing just that. However, letting them know that they are not alone, that life does get better, will improve their chances of staying drug and alcohol free.
