Does my teenager have a hangover from using alcohol?
Your teenager seems tired and sick a lot on the weekends. You’re beginning to wonder if they’re drinking the night before, but they tell you it’s just from staying up too late. Frequent hangovers are a sign of alcohol abuse or alcoholism. (See our Teen Binge Drinking Assessment, our Teen Alcohol Abuse Assessment, or our Teen Alcoholism Assessment to learn more about teenagers and alcohol.) A teenager’s brain is still developing rapidly, making them more susceptible to alcoholism than adults. It is important to identify teenage drinkers as early as possible and begin treatment so they will not have to struggle with alcohol problems their entire life. Take this quick assessment to learn the warning signs of an alcohol hangover and help you determine if your teenager may be drinking.
