Addiction changes the brain. That’s why substance use disorders are measured as a legitimate disease inducing both physical and psychological changes within those who remain untreated. Adolescents are particularly vulnerable to developing substance use disorders.

Unfortunately, teens don’t consider the long-term detriments of experimenting with addictive substances. Once exposed to addictive substances over a long period of time, the brain under goes potentially permanent chemical changes.

Adolescents are particularly vulnerable to developing substance use disorders

Those chemical reactions are responsible for inhibiting the healthy production of natural chemicals like serotonin and dopamine.

Specifically, alcohol retards the brain’s development in adolescents. Those who begin drinking early on in life are at an increased risk of developing full-blown alcohol dependence use disorders.
