I understand that this forum is mainly for parents whose children are now grown, but could I ask a question of all of you that have experience with children who have substance abuse issues? My 13 year old daughter that has ODD/ADD started smoking pot and drinking at the age of 11. She claims that she cannot stop smoking pot because it is the only thing that helps her to calm down. My question is what things have you as parents tried to help your children with as far as treatment options go? What has worked, what didn't? Did most of you have children who ended up trying harder drugs after starting with pot? Is there any medication that you know of that helps control the urge to smoke pot? I would appreciate any feedback and please excuse the fact that I am still trying to learn the abbreviations and lingo on this site due to being new.
