More Teenagers Abusing Inhalants

by Jessica Cervantez

While drug use has declined across the nation, there is one kind of drug-use that has increased and it can be found right in your home, it's the use of inhalants. It's also known as huffing.

Statistics show more than a million American teenagers have intentionally used inhalants, which include household products.

Drug free advocates say that they are easily accessible. And it may be difficult for parents to talk to children about inhalant abuse because you don't want to give them any ideas.

Drug free advocates say your best bet is to keep products that can be used as inhalants completely out of the reach of children.
