    Teen Girls Are Using More Drugs and Alcohol Than Boys - Emax Health

    A report released today shows increases in alcohol and drug consumption among teenage girls.

    "Parents of teen girls have to be especially attentive to their daughters' moods and mental health needs, which can have a direct effect on their child's decision to risk her health by getting high and drinking," said Pasierb. "Parents can help prevent alcohol and drug abuse by recognizing and addressing their daughters' worries and stresses, by supporting her positive decisions and by taking immediate action if they suspect or know she has been experimenting with drugs and alcohol."
