curryDepression is a very powerful problem and can be a major contributor to substance abuse, especially in young people.

A study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology found that treating teenagers for major depression can reduce the odds that they will develop a substance abuse disorder.

Dr. John Curry, Professor Psychology and Neuroscience at Duke University, joins Substance Abuse 411 to talk about the study, its findings and how this could lead to reducing drug abuse problems among teenagers.

  1. Teen depression that is serious can lead to additional problems. Teens that are depressed may be more likely to do drugs or drink alcohol. Teens in this situation are less likely to do well in school. They may retreat so much so into themselves that they may become ill or may attempt to harm themselves.

    One of the scariest things about teen depression is how well they can hide it. Many teens will face bouts of depression, but those that have too many will hide it well from you. If this is the case, you may never realize how much trouble they are in until it is too later. Parenting a teen means; making it your business to know.
