If you’re nervous that your teen might be using drugs but want to know for sure before confronting them about it, you might want to search for any substances they’ve left in the house.

Where Do Teens Hide Their Drugs?

By Teen Rehab

While it's important to respect your teen’s space and privacy, there are a few places you might want to check if you think your teen is using drugs.

  • In Their Bedroom

    By Teen Rehab

    Teens see their bedrooms as their private place and may hide their drugs amongst their things. They also might hide their drugs in a sibling’s room, especially if they believe they could get caught.

  • Behind the Walls

    Air vents, baseboards and insulation are easy hiding spots for drugs and alcohol. Loose screws and boards may signal your teen is hiding something behind the walls.

  • In Hollowed-out Spaces

    Drugs can be easily stored in hollowed-out and flexible spaces like books, jewellery boxes, socks and pillow-cases.

  • In An Old Drink Bottle

    Your teen may fill an old juice, water or mouthwash bottle with alcohol, hoping to disguise the beverage as water in an old container. Alternatively, there exist specialty safe stashes that look like cans of pop, but [actually open](https://www.amazon.ca/Coca-Cola-Coke-Diversion-Stash/dp/B003GMUU36) to reveal a hiding spot inside.

  • With Household Medicine

    Using Ibuprofen, cold or other prescription medication containers as a cover, teens might try to hide their drugs out in the open so as not to raise suspicion.
