520    "From Berkeley to the Bronx, teenage addiction has reached
       epidemic levels. Parents may suspect their teen's 
       substance use, but often don't know if their teen is 
       addicted or what to do about it. Dr. Laurence Westreich, 
       an addiction expert and the father of two teenagers, helps
       parents navigate the fraught addiction landscape in A 
       Parent's Guide to Teen Addiction. Divided into three 
       sections, this book--based on the author's decades of 
       experience evaluating and treating teenagers who use 
       substances--guides parents from the moment they suspect 
       their teen has a substance abuse problem to the steps 
       families must take after intensive treatment. Dr. 
       Westreich: Lays out the facts of teen addiction and 
       explains how to recognize a problem with a teen: Details 
       what parents need to know about the substances that 
       teenagers commonly use; Provides information on what to do
       about the substance abuse, including how to find good one-
       on-one addiction therapy, how to encourage a teen to enter
       an outpatient program or inpatient facility, and how to 
       line up aftercare treatment. Best of all, he includes 
       "tough talk" dialogues that parents can tailor to their 
       specific situation with their teen. This practical, 
       hopeful, and reassuring book helps parents put their teen 
       on the healthy and life-affirming road to recovery."--
