The treatments for addiction in teenagers have progressed drastically over the past 25 years. There is a clear category nowadays that the demands of the younger generation in regards to managing their addiction and other psychological health problems differ significantly from those of the adults. There are dual diagnosis treatment centers where teens can be referred to if they have addiction issues and psychological problems. Minor therapy emphasizes the significance of comprehensive professional help. In the investigation of the NIH, they took into consideration such factors as having a family history of alcohol addiction, smoking cigarettes, habits during childhood being antisocial, and abusing drugs. These factors are perceived to elevate the chances of alcohol consumption and drug abuse. Dating back to the 1980s, drug treatment for addiction and psychological medical issues commonly took place in programs for adults prior to the drug and mental health treatment programs for those under 18 was developed in the later years.
A typical consequence of the decision that teenagers make in taking risks when substance addiction is already involved is in fact a natural tendency of adolescents to do. Due to the way the human brain develops, pressing restrictions, for innovation, and for risk taking during age of puberty is a common. Most young adults discover wholesome ways to take risks via extra-curricular school activities or by learning to skateboard for instance. Some youngsters, however, look for risks through alcohol and drugs. Many parents and guardians would be, and are, encouraged to simply prevent their teens from taking any sorts of risks. Considering that its a normal part on the process of their development, staying away from risk-taking might actually be unsafe. For that reason, it is essential to provide young people with healthy approaches to take risks. That’s why having a less constrained environment and peer-to-peer conversation is recommended for these adolescents to be exposed to such safe “risk-taking” activities. Less restricted environmental therapy is advocated to the youths with cases of long term and consistent substance addiction and related problems to remove them from their accustomed setting. A young individual’s therapy should take place in the least restrictive atmosphere to motivate them to be optimistic during their connections with their family and other healthy individuals. Identification of peer-to-peer interaction is also essential during programs of recuperation because this provide youths with helpful discussions and encouragements.

I was bankrupt, had huge credit card debt, had no job prospects, no possessions, no superannuation (retirement savings), and no plan. My self-esteem was ZERO. I am extremely fortunate my parents are very supportive and opened up their home for us. We will be forever grateful. But it was extremely tough to swallow. To go from being a professional sportsman, to owning Real Estate, to having so much freedom traveling and living around the world for many years, to end up living back with my parents was depressing to say the least. It’s nothing personal against them, it’s just not what I was supposed to be doing with my life, at my age, with my own family. I felt like a loser. I felt guilty. I hated myself and my life. I felt a responsibility to take care of my family financially. Fortunately my parents own a two story house and we had the upstairs level to ourselves – 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen – things could have been worse. I started working with a mate of mine back in construction, and Caz started teaching part-time. It was good to be busy and earning money again.
On the side we continued to build y Travel Blog and learned as much as we could about being a travel blogger. We were making steady progress, but little money. Our focus and game plan was to build our brand and readership over a two year period first. After a few months back home we finally had exciting news, we were expecting our second child. It gave us inspiration and motivation to keep going, to keep believing that good things could happen again. We were excited about our 3 month ultrasound check up. It was going to be even more special this time as Kalyra was in the ultra-sound room with us to see her little sister or brother on the big screen. The nurse started the ultra-sound and turned on the TV monitor, and when I saw her facial expression change from cheery to blank, I just knew. We had lost the baby. I don’t even remember what we said to Kalyra.
It hit us both really hard, Caz more so being the carrier of our unborn child and having to have surgery to complete the miscarriage. The roller-coaster of emotions started again. Fortunately, several months later we conceived for a third time. There were no complications and baby Savannah was born. We decided from the beginning of our blog to put ourselves out there, to be transparent and, not only tell our story, but show our story. Our passion became our mission, to not only create our own dream life, but inspire others to do the same. We know the value of travel with our kids and we want to do all we can to share this lifestyle. Unfortunately to be able to make that difference and stand up for your passion you have to put yourself out there and promote what you do. We always try to soften this by providing a ton of value and giving our time to others in a friendly and fun way.
Doing this comes with sacrifice though. You cop flack from others, you get more eye rolls, and smart arse comments. I still get uncomfortable sometimes updating our status on social media. I’ve never been one to toot my own horn – always better to get someone else to toot it and the sound travels twice as far. But you have to make the decision – your passion and dreams or living your life for other people? Who cares what the naysayers tell you and how they make you feel? All that matters is that you are following your heart and caring passionately about making a difference. I’m never going to blatantly brag about any opportunities, but I’m not going to apologise for them either. At the end of the day we are promoting travel and our brand, so getting excited about a destination and sharing it on social media is just a part of what we do. For the first two years we published almost daily, did courses, attended conferences, and worked on our business to the early hours of the morning.
