Teens Using Drugs and Alcohol to Cope with Bullying


Bullied teenagers and young adults are using alcohol and drugs to handle bullying.

Data from 2018 has shown that 380,000 people aged between 14 and 25 experienced cyber bullying.

New researcher has prompted renewed calls for bullying to be recognised as a national health problem but alcohol being used to cope by teens and young adults is a precursor of how they will cope with life later on. This is a gateway to more serious issues in later life like binge drinking, drink driving, overdosing or unprotected sex.
