Families in Action with Cary Quashen air on AM-1220 KHTS Mondays from 12pm-1pm.
Welcome to families in action on your Home Town Station AM 1220 KHTS and Action family counseling. Action Family Counseling is rehabilitation canters for substance abuse for teens and adults. We meet at Canyon High school and for the Spanish speaking we meet at Hart High School. The Action Family Zone is a grate place to go not just for substance abuse problems but for any teen and family issues. Our rehabs are more dedicated to substance abuse problems but when you are dealing with teens there are often multiple problems that come up before hand.
We have had a lot of people coming in. That is kind of normal, before the holidays people do not want to commit to going into a center but now that the holidays are over people are starting to commit. We have been starting a program that is an alternative to suspension program for first time drug offending kids. The advantage of this is we get to get first had experience about the trends. For example we are seeing more meth this year than there have been in the last few years. Kids are getting scared of heroin so they are falling back onto meth.
 For the first time I met two kids that have never tried pot, they went straight to meth. This is not what normally happens. Normally kids are at a party drinking and smoking pot, when some one asks them to try something else, they are already high so the choice is not the difficult to make to try harder stronger drugs. This is where these kids will fall in love with the wrong sort of drugs.
Welcome back to families in action on your home town station am 1220 khts. Before I forget, if there is anyone out there who want to talk please call us. I think our current topic is just to talk about the current trends in what kids are doing, so if you want to talk about it please give us a call.
It is getting kind of scary out there. The variety of drugs out there, the quality and quantity of them that are available to these kids is just frightening.
