If parents, school personnel, or other significant persons in an adolescent's life observe these warning signs, a cooperative effort should be undertaken. An assessment should be made by a qualified professional to determine if alcohol/chemical dependency exits, or if another problem requiring professional help is present. Once an appropriate assessment is made, treatment alternatives can be explored with the adolescent and family members.
