Diet pills

by At-Risk.org Staff, on boot camps, diet pills, eating disorder, teen diet, troubled teenagers

Teen's body perception could result into an eating disorder. It is the idea of being thin that pressures most of these kids. Somehow they believe that skinny is pretty, or somehow they just want to avoid being teased at school. That's why some of them resort to diet pills. The scary part is that, these drugs are accessible over the counter. Such drugs contain caffeine, Phenylpropranolamine and Ephedrine that are considered very dangerous if abused.
