ARLS Marchman Act Blog - 12-year-olds abusing inhalants, report says


Washington (CNN) -- When their kids turn 12, parents are concerned about peers pressuring them to smoke cigarettes, drink and use drugs, but it turns out 12-year-olds are doing something else: getting high on inhalants.

A new national survey from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration report finds that they're using inhalants more than marijuana, hallucinogens and cocaine combined.

Inhalant Addiction said...

Inhalant addiction can be even more difficult to deal with than different kinds of addictions because of the availability of the inhalants. Inhalants are plentiful & are simple to find basically laying around in basements & garages. These products include lots of household products such as paint thinners, gasoline, glues, butane lighters, propane, whipped cream dispensers, spray paint, deodorants, hairsprays, cooking sprays, & various nitrates. These products are inhaled & provide a high for the person.
