Adolescent Medicine 44 years experience
Special therapists: Pediatricians and family medicine physicians can often help parents to find a special therapist or recovery program in the community where you live. There are now a few medical treatments that help with certain addictions, so consulting an addiction medicine specialist is also a good idea. Type "adolescent substance abuse treatment" in a search engine, as a way to start looking, too.
