The effect that happen in families is that the user attitude changes towards rule and regulations and family members and they seem to participate less and less in family activities. You can also tell if the suspected user is using if they isolatesthemselves away fro the family in their room or someplace else secluded. They break rules such as staying out after curfew or sneaking out after curfew. You an also catch them in lies and see them blaming others for irresponsible actions. They begin to steal and start violent situations both physical and verbal. There is a certain vagueness to company kept from other family members. Friends can also tell weather the person is using because the mood changes towards them or just leaves them all together and has no interest in old friends and the parent do not know the new ones. In school the performance will go down, excessive times being tardy skipping whole classes or days dropping out of sport and other activities too is another indicator of ATOD use. Also they begin to start begin being disrespectful towards teachers.
