Q98: I think my friend/teenage child is taking drugs, what can I do?
In the first instance it might be worth speaking to your friend/child in a tactful calm way. There is often not a lot that a parent or friend can do without professional help unless the person themselves is willing to admit that they have a problem. The organisations listed in related websites will be able to offer support and help you to take the right sort of approach.
