Trying to keep your children on the right track in life is becoming harder and harder. Children are bombarded with information about drug and drug abuse through television programs, peers and music, and prescription medications like oxycodone are increasingly available through illegal sources. Talk with your children regularly regarding the dangers of drug abuse and help them open up to you about what they know about drugs and drug abuse and what they see at school or in their social groups. If you think that your child is abusing oxycodone, there are certain steps you need to take to help them find help and end their abuse, before it becomes a powerful addiction that takes over their life.
If your child is not prescribed oxycodone and you find any oxycodone on them or in their room, this is a red flag for drug abuse. If your child is becoming more secretive about how he or she spends time or money, drug use is a possibility. If your child has been prescribed oxycodone for any reason, make sure that you monitor dosage carefully to make sure that he or she uses oxycodone appropriately and does not take more oxycodone than recommended or more frequently than suggested. If oxycodone abuse is present in your child’s life, get professional help as quickly as possible to avoid or end oxycodone addiction.
