Alcohol and marijuana are no longer parents' only concerns when it comes to their teenagers.  In fact what's inside your medicine cabinet could actually be more dangerous.

"It's a lot more intense than smoking marijuana or drinking," says a teenager who used.

Wednesday on Fox23 at 10 p.m., you'll meet a 23-year-old who became addicted when he was 18.

"Once I started, I wanted to try new things to feel a way I hadn't felt before, which led me to experiment with other types of things," he says.

You'll also meet a parent, who had no idea what her son was into.

"I never thought it would happen to me, or to my kid, but it does," she says.

You'll hear from a doctor, who says teens are putting their bodies at risk.

"I didn't know anything about addiction," says a teen who used. "I didn't see myself becoming an addict. I figured everyone was doing it and that I could just stop when I wanted to stop, but I couldn't stop."

Wednesday night at 10 p.m., in Taryn Kane's special report, you'll learn what you need to know to protect your kids.
