Your daughter is using drugs and you want her to stop. Your son is drinking too much and you think he should quit. Every time you try to talk to your teen you end up frustrated and feeling like you've gotten nowhere. Now what?
A counsellor can talk with you about your situation and your concerns about your son or daughter. Responding to someone else's problem is hard work. When it feels like your life is out of control, we can help you get it back. We can help you learn some ways of getting through to your child, and guide you to appropriate treatment options.
