College is an important time for many young students and if anyone knows this, it is the AAC (American Addiction Centers). They know the challenges that young students are facing. It’s hard to find their dream job with so much competition out there, and there is also the pressure to fit in at college as well.
They want to make friends, maybe meet their soul mate, and also feel like they are part of something special. However, they can’t let all of that influence them so much they lose sight of what makes them so unique and so special. There will be a lot of pressure to participate in parties and do drugs or drink alcohol. They need to resist that temptation and stay strong.

This is why the AAC is releasing information for parents to look over with their college students. They know many of them are on their way back to school right now or are starting college for the very first time. Each and every year of college is important.
They can’t afford to waste it or get involved in bad habits. They need to remember why they are in college in the first place: It is to get an education and start their career. If something were to derail that, it would truly be a shame.
The AAC has seen this happen to so many college kids in the past. It breaks their heart when it happens. These kids are filled with so much promise and so much potential. They throw it all away because they get mixed up with the wrong crowd. Research shows that 62% of college students drank within the past month.
The math on that is way too high. Many of these kids are not even the legal drinking age, which is another problem. The AAC hopes that parents can talk about this with their children and help them realize what is at stake here.
It is not only their college future, but it is their entire future as a human being as well. Addiction is something that is supremely hard to overcome once it’s entered someone’s system. They will have to enter a treatment center, and this is time they could have spent in school or at a job. It is why they need to tackle this subject now, so they don’t have to face it in the future.
They need to know the risks are not worth it, as there are no rewards in this situation. The people that they think might like them or accept them are just phonies. They are not their real friends. If they were their real friends, they would accept them for who they are and not pressure them into drinking.
