(PRWEB) October 26, 2005 -- A release from the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) earlier this month announced their partnership with education

 and health leaders to launch an ad campaign targeting parents. An open letter to parents titled "Marijuana Could Threaten Your Teen's Success," appeared in national and local newspapers, including The New York Times and USA Today, as well as in Time, Newsweek and People magazines.

 “  Marijuana Could Threaten Your Teen's Success  
More than a dozen agencies and organizations have signed on in support of the campaign. While illicit drug use among teens is on the decline, marijuana is the most commonly used drug among 16- and 17-year-olds. Research shows that 1.3 million teens between the ages of 12 and 17 used marijuana for the first time last year.

Studies show that marijuana use during these peak academic years can have a significant negative impact on academic performance. Marijuana can hinder a teen's ability to learn

 and heavy use impairs young people's ability to concentrate and retain information. Use of the drug is also linked to poorer grades. A teen with a "D" average is four times more likely to have used marijuana than a teen with an "A" average. A teenage marijuana user's odds of dropping out are more than twice that of a non-user.

Marijuana use is just one of the topics of concern this week as the nation focuses on drug prevention. Red Ribbon Week is celebrated throughout the country in support of drug-free living.

Along with casual use is the risk of becoming dependent on the drug. Data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) showed that in 1992 there were 45 treatment admissions for marijuana use per 100,000 people aged 12 or older. This number more than doubled to 93 admissions by 1997 and in 2002 was 118. This resulted in an increase from six percent to 15 percent of all treatment admissions.

In a release issued by SAMHSA, Administrator Charles Curie exclaimed, “Marijuana is not a harmless substance, and these treatment trends emphasize that point.”

Executive Director of Narconon Arrowhead Gary W. Smith reports, “Although the number of people coming to us who are abusing pot is a smaller percentage of our total clientele, in the 30 years I have been in the drug rehabilitation field I have not seen these numbers of individuals literally hooked on marijuana and unable to stop on their own.”

 programs in the country and it uses the drug-free methodology developed by American author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard.

People seeking rehabilitation at Narconon Arrowhead often have tried more traditional treatment methods and have failed, thus leaving them with little hope that they could beat their addiction. However, the Narconon® Drug Rehabilitation Program repeatedly achieves a success rate of approximately 70% for helping people permanently recover from their addiction.
