According to Judy Griffith, the Helena School District's chemical dependency awareness program coordinator, children who use alcohol and drugs before age 15 are far more likely to develop an addiction than those who wait till after they're 19 or 20.
Children's brains are still rapidly developing, Griffith continued, and even a one-time exposure could change brain chemistry, making a child more vulnerable to addiction later in life.

Judy Griffith, chemical awareness program coordinator for Helena high schools, said she has been fascinated with brain development for a long time and doesn't ever get tired of talking about it.
"The notion that (brain development) all happens before the teenage years is wrong," she said.

"You might as well smack your head with a brick," she said.
