Addictions in Teens: Helping Parents keep their Sanity and Influence

Finding a Sense of Direction that Benefits You and your Teen

Parenting teens with addictions is a tough gig.

You’re standing right there, watching your kid struggle and flail. And yet you don’t have the influence you used to have to intervene.

Parents can find themselves in a constant fight to establish control and limits. Meanwhile they’re gripped by frustration, overwhelm, and fear about their teen’s well-being and future.

In this series I’ll share a set of guiding principles around addictions in teens that have helped my parenting clients over the past two decades. The focus is to help you get your bearings back and provide hope, insight, and a better sense of direction that benefits you and your teen.

I’ll focus on some of the more common addictions including electronics, social media, marijuana, nicotine, and food-related addictions. But what you learn will apply to any type of addiction.

Joining me for a session will be guest speaker Dr. George Pransky, Ph.D., a psychologist with 40+ years of clinical experience in addictions and family systems.

I’m offering this series at a special rate to celebrate the recent launch of my new website. Hope to see you there.


Sessions will be 75 minutes long. Replays will be available for four months.

The sessions are on Tuesdays in June 2024:
June 4 at 11am PT

No, your partner does not need to participate in any of my programs. In fact about half of the people that attend my relationship programs either have partners that don’t participate, or they’re single. It may seem like a funny concept to attend a relationships program without a partner, but the fact is, it doesn’t actually matter given how relationships actually work.

The goal of these programs is to help you to show up to the relationship, and the tension and challenges it brings with less reactivity and overanalysis, and more clarity, grace, and presence. That has a profound and immediate impact on the relationship as it changes the level of communication, the chemistry, the connection, and the overall dynamic. It’s the best thing you can do for yourself, AND for the relationship.

Yes. Many of the people in my relationship programs are either single and don’t necessarily want a relationship right now, are dating and looking to settle down, or are with someone but not sure if that’s ‘their person.’

My programs are designed to give you a solid foundation to build close and healthy relationships in the future. It does not mean you are committing to the person you’re with, or that you need to be in a relationship right now. When you’re ready, and you find someone you want to put your energy into, you’ll understand what it takes to stay out of your old habits, go through challenges without shutting down, and build a connection that’s real and gets better over time.

feedback from previous events

"Erika Bugbee is the teen whisperer. She’s also the 'parents-of-teens' whisperer.
Erika works with teens and their parents in ways that look like magic, but are deceptively simple and full of common sense. She talks about how understanding what a teen’s inner life is like–even just a little bit–can make a gigantic difference in the quality of your interactions."
- Dr. Amy Johnson, Ph.D., Canton, MI
