All good kids in Western cultures have at least one of those risk factors as most are surrounded by a culture of drinking and drugging. Moreover, much addiction starts with experimenting.Katherine Gordy Levine says this is a one of those situations where you need to go for damage control.

One of the first steps is to be honest that people drink and use drugs because both can lead to good feelings – at least for a while- then do a bit of education about the risks. She promotes staying aware of the Levine Alarm List – nine indicators that more than experimenting is going on.

Then she provides tips and strategies for dealing effectively with experimenting that has moved into dangerous drinking or drugging. Finally, she points to the need for self-care and support and where to find the help you need to stay strong.Katherine is not only a licensed therapist, former professor, and director of mental health crisis teams, she and her husband have cared for over three hundred foster children, mostly teens and each in trouble with the law.

Her suggestions are both clinically sound, but also based on practical experience. She knows what works and what does not work. Moreover, she is on the side of all parents.
