Resources for Teens Struggling with Substance Abuse
Tuesday's story "Few resources for teen addicts: Mother worries about options for 15-year-old son" in The Couer d'Alene Press highlights the importance of getting help for kids struggling with drug or alcohol abuse, including an interview with IYR's senior vice president of programs Dr. Robert Ball.
Unfortunately, resources for treatment are scarce. Our Anchor Houseprogram in Northern Idaho is one of only a few programs in the state where families- even families with limited fincances- can get the help they need for teenage boys.
