HELP! My 17 year old son is huffing. I've found empty bottles of rubbing alcohol in his bathroom and a strange device in one of his duffle bags. It is a hose with a screw top lid attached. I also found a metal piece in his room that is the same one used to glue the lid to the hose. I had talked to him about weed last year because I smelled it on him and found residue two other times. I haven't seen any indication of weed anymore. This is so upsetting because I don't understand it and it scares me because I don't know anything about it. One of his former friends has been caught with spray cans in his truck and I'm finally putting all the pieces together. What can I do to help him? He is a "good" kid, smart, and we have a close relationship even though I've never been able to get him to "talk". He has an older brother and sister and he seems to listen to his sister. Do I need to take him to a doctor or counselor? I just don't know what to do. Please help.

Thanks for posting.  It is important for you to look through inhalant.org and other sites on the internet to get a better grasp on the issue.  Next, I think you should speak with your son directly about the issue.  At the same time, you should talk to your older children about the issue and let them know the situation, that you suspect your other son of abusing inhalants.

Lastly, it is important to get professional help (i.e. family doctor or a counselor) as they will be able to give you local resources for your son.

I hope this helps initially.  Any parents out there have advice for 123urit?

I have confronted my 14 year old boy and all he does is deny deny deny. At this point he has become violent and my option is too send him in a treatment center

at this point, it sounds like you really have no option except to get him treatment.. If he is violent he could be detoxing or still under the influence and be extremely agressive and hostile , and needs to be in a safe environment to detox...I dont know the laws in your stae but if he refuses treatment, you can petition his doctor or the court to impose a marchman act or baker act  because he has become a threat to himself and possibly a threat to others..they can keep him against his will for up to 5 days to do an assessment and eval   I wish you the best of luck finding a treatment program that addresses huffing and inhalants.  God Bless and keep us informed as you progress through this nightmare.

I found him in the bathtub last night in his vomit, after I
heard choking sounds, I am scared, I heard the same sounds two nights ago and he states there was cat hair
at the end of his throat I do not believe him , and at this point I am not sure how addicted he is, I just learned about his behavior sunday evening, when his room smelled like smoke and areosol , He claims he is
fascinated with fire since my awareness I have found
other evidence and he is still denying.

jnichols- At this point you really need to talk to him and get him help, because he doesn't realize the harm he's causing. Have you spoken with a medical professional to see what treatment options are in your area?
