According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, about half of adolescents have misused a illicit drug at least once. While research shows that 1 in 7 kids who partake in alcohol and drug use, will have a diagnosable substance use disorder. With continued alcohol and drug use, the amygdala, which is a part of our brains that produce chemicals such as cortisol and serotonin, becomes swollen and produces excess amounts of these chemicals. This chemical change in the brain can lead to a individual to stay in a survival mode with the flight, fright, and freeze responses.
