My 18 year old son, Ethan, graduated from high school 6 months ago. Since that time, he smokes Marijuana every day, does not work, and is not enrolled in school. Additionally, he sleeps all day. More recently, he has started to drink a 5th of Vodka daily. Is this normal teenage behavior?

Shaw, this is not normal teenage behavior. In fact, Ethan is underage and should not be drinking alcohol, nor using illicit substances. Ethan has a substance abuse problem. An intervention should be staged immediately. Ethan should then undergo detox and then check into an in-patient rehab.
