Isolation and even talkativeness can be another sign that a teenager is likely to become addicted.
The family argues that there has recently been a change in the adolescent’s behavior that has made him or her more isolated from the past, or even that he or she has become very talkative, a behavior that has not been seen in him or her before, and all this can It is a sign of addiction that has caused a change in his behavior and should be considered, because the use of some psychedelics such as glass can cause antisocial or excessive talk in adolescents.
