Evaluation
Issues facing teens are, social life. Being able to balance school work and friends. Teens need to find ways they can do all that they want to do, but in a organized way. Teens get caught up in wanting to party and the consequence for that is, to suffer in school. Teens are trying hard to show people that they can do something. It becomes difficult and brings pressure when trying to give your all. By trying to impress people teens, take on a work load that drives them crazy. Now, they have to battle trying to keep up with everything. Websites with information will allow teens to see, ways on how to battle certain challenges and make good decisions. Tips and advice on what's the best way for teens to overcome hurdles.
Project Milestone 2
Drugs
Important issue
Drugs have become an out for many teens today. Teens choose to use drugs in order to be in the "in crowd." They want others to see that they are as cool as them. But, the reality is that those teens that use drugs are not cool at all. If you want to be noticed or have friends, then just be yourself because drugs do not help you be in the "in crowd," they just hurt you and could even be fatal. There are also teens who use drugs because they are depressed or stressed. They feel that their life is out of control and that they are not able to get back on track. Teens do not want to have to think about the craziness in their life, so they block it out by using drugs. According to soundvision.com, There were an estimated 708,000 new inhalant users in 1997, up from 332,000 in 1989. The rate of first use among youths age 12-17 rose significantly from 1989 to 1995, from 8.4 to 18.8 per 1,000 potential new users, and remained level after that.

Personal Story
The Lows of Getting High: Alby's Story
By Cate Bailey
Adapted from Heads Up: Real News About Drugs and Your Body, Scholastic, Inc., 2003. Alby
At 18, Alby was living a nightmare
behind bars. He felt he was in constant physical danger. “I saw people get stabbed,” he told Scholastic. And he experienced daily indignities. “I couldn't eat the food they served. The potatoes were like blocks and the meat didn't taste like meat,” he says. Believe it or not, getting arrested was probably the best thing that could have happened to Alby. It got him into treatment for his drug problem.
When we spoke to Alby, he was 1 month into his recovery at a drug rehabilitation center in Westchester, New York.
Grudge Against the World
It all started one summer day on a
street corner in Yonkers, New York, when Alby was 13. “You need to get your mind right. Hit this blunt,” a friend said. Alby didn’t have the strength to say no. He felt he had to smoke the blunt (a cigar hollowed out and refilled with marijuana) to fit in. He desperately wanted to belong. His parents had never been there for him. They were drug addicts themselves and couldn’t handle the demands of parenting. So, Alby bounced from a foster home to his grandmother’s to a group home. When he was about 14, his mother died. “I wasn’t supposed to go through this,” Alby says. “I had a grudge against the world.” After trying marijuana (also called weed, grass, pot, herb, boom, Mary Jane, and chronic) to fit in, Alby kept abusing the drug because he enjoyed the intoxicated feeling marijuana creates. “It had me in another state of mind,” he says. “I was relaxed. All my problems seemed like they were disappearing.”
the Price
But Alby’s problems weren't disappearing. They
were getting worse. The good feelings he sought from marijuana came at a price. Over the next 5 years, Alby smoked marijuana every day, several times a day. He went to school high and eventually dropped out. “I was losing focus. My attention went from 100 to 0. I was depressed,” he says. Despite the consequences, Alby kept smoking marijuana. In fact, he was willing to do anything to get high. Eventually, he started dealing drugs to support his habit. That’s what landed him in a maximum-security jail. Now, at Daytop, a substance abuse treatment center, Alby has been able to address the real problems in his life by talking them out with counselors and making new friends he describes as “positive.” But he still feels some of the effects of his drug use. “Sometimes I want to say things, and I can’t get them out. I can’t find the words,” Alby says. “I never had that problem before I started smoking.” Alby’s memory problems may improve with time. But for now, they are enormously frustrating. “I used to know things,” says Alby, “but now, it’s rusty. I forgot how to do division.” Frustrations aside, he is looking ahead and hoping to create a future for himself. Alby wants to pursue a career as a mechanic.
