Top 10 Places Teens Hide Drugs

Hiding spots for drugs haven’t changed much over the last few decades, but you may be surprised at some of the creative ways adolescents hide their drug of choice in plain sight.

For many, keeping drugs readily accessible rather than in a ‘stash’ makes sure that there is little to no risk of it being lost, or found, for that matter. A lot of young drug users capitalize on the fact that their parents won’t necessarily invade their direct private space, keeping small packages directly on their person in discreet areas close to their body.

View the gallery below for the top 10 places teens hide drugs.

    Thanks for another great article; always enjoy what you offer. Interesting list — hadn’t thought of some of these. One hiding spot that eluded a friend of mine was her son’s golf bag and sleeves of golf balls. Our son tended to hide his stuff outside: under patio seat cushions, on top of the arbor, etc. But we found the most important thing was having and implementing a plan of action if we did find drugs or alcohol. The implementing part was especially hard, and we didn’t always do it. But, wow, what peace we felt when we did. Maybe not immediately, but the peace of knowing what we were insisting on was RIGHT — right for our son, right for our family — made the difficult actions so worth it. We are so incredibly grateful for NLH.

    How likely is it for a couple to get clean of herion after shooting up a thousand dollars worth a week for over three years and been on meth as well for about nine years ? Putting needles in his neck is scary and watching them overdose .

      Unfortunately there are no hard and fast rules on the likelihood of someone getting sober based on how long or what they have been using. The good news is that if he is willing and wants to change, it is never too late.
