The object of this target population this researcher has chosen to speak about is convicted youth offender’s that use illegal drugs. The present researcher wanted information on the different contributed factors, treatments that are used, and what programs are used to help them. Many problems families have to deal with are what programs are designed to help their children. Parent’s only wants the best for their children. This type of problem can cause a number of problems in the home. Will your family be there to support you or will they turn their back on you? Will they help and encourage you in this time of need. Will they be disappointed in you? This type of problem can cause distress on your family and the people who are around you. This type of conviction can cause an individual to develop low self-esteem for him or her. This type of behavior in teenagers could develop from disadvantage families. What this researcher means, families in which many parents are not working, have low levels of education and low self-esteem. Another reason is the type of crowd that individual hangs around (peer pressure). Family conflict is natural; when it comes to these families have a hard time dealing with this type of issue. They often wonder if they keep quite maybe this will go away. Addiction is something that will not go away. The researcher feels if you deal with the problem right from the beginning, you will have a chance of recovery. Also, the researcher feels that person will…
trying drugs or simply decide to cross the line of the taboo of society due to curiosity or, often, just plain boredom. Many people who become addicted to drugs began taking them recreationally, but in many cases, this recreational 'flight of fantasy' or 'mental escape' comes with more than the user bargained for. Unfortunately for most people, they are either unaware or uncaring of their family or ethnic background that may be markers of their predisposition for addiction. Since many drugs are considered…
One of the most commonly recognized addictions include addictions to alcohol and other mood-altering drugs. I know many people who are, and were once addicted to alcohol and many other drugs. To be addicted to anything is to need it; you’ll do whatever it takes to get that drug. Even if that means give away your most prized position.

Drugs and Addiction
Drugs have many effects on the body and mind. People use drugs for various reasons nowadays; some are prescribed, but what about the people that use not prescribed? How do they get them? Many people that use these drugs find themselves doing almost anything to get them; there have even been some college students that get doctors and therapists to give medications without much examination.
There are many drugs a person can get addicted to from prescription drugs to more…
The Cycle of Addiction
Drugs range from a variety of sorts; pharmacy pills, alcohol, heroin, crystal meth, the list goes
on. The question is; what draws people into doing drugs? The majority of people who have abused
medication started out with something as simple as cigarettes. Why try cigarettes? Why would anyone
do such a thing? Some are led into it by peer pressure. Others by stress or depression, or just because
they were curious. One addicted, it is just an afternoon thing. One very small guilty pleasure to do on…

U.S. Drug Policy
There has been much controversy over the United States current drug policy. With new studies showing that some current illegal drugs actually have medical benefits, there has been a sudden outcry from the public on drug legalization. There are certain questions regarding the drug policy that I felt most relevant to this policy issue today in the following paragraphs. I have given the two opposing views of each question.

Drug abuse has a more commonplace in our society today than before. Drug abuse is the habitual use of drugs to alter one's mood, emotion, or state of consciousness.

There are many dangers and cause…
When many people think of addiction dependences on alcohol or drugs often come to mind. There are a vast number of other activities however, that can be just as addicting if abused. Here in America, we are taught at early ages to steer clear of drugs and alcohol due to their addictive nature. At home, our parents admonish us about the dangers of drugs and drinking and we are enrolled in D.A.R.E programs while in school. Furthermore we are reminded to “stay above the influence”…

never use or take any type of illegal drug or alcoholic substance because I have
seen what drugs and alcohol can do to people. I have seen how far the deepest pits go,
without ever having been there myself. I know what bottom is and I shall never go there!
People that I knew and might have loved once have gone to the bottom and died there. I
will NOT follow in their footsteps and make the same mistakes that they have made.
I have seen drugs and alcohol turn good, caring people into…
