Introducing Addiction Under 30

Addiction is a hard thing to overcome, and people from all walks and ages in life struggle with it. But in some ways, it’s especially tragic when a young adult or teenager is dealing with addiction. A teenager’s brain is still under development, and battling addiction can impact their neurological growth and stunt brain connections.

We’re still learning about addiction every day, and so the science of addiction is especially important to consider.

That’s why I’m pleased to introduce Addiction Under 30 with Eric Schmidt. This blog will explore what it means to be addicted and the process by which addicted young adults can become well. Eric has worked in the behavioral health and substance abuse field for the past 20 years. You can learn more about him here.

Please join me in giving Eric a warm Psych Central welcome over on his new blog now, Addiction Under 30.
