The hospital is scary for all age groups, and the environment where you usually sleep in is not where you are at that time, I can understand. I'm in my almost mid-20s and have been hospitalized in my late teens and I felt like I was all out of routine in a scary place.
We are getting a lot of 18 - 25 years old with overdosing or attempted overdosing. I had a patient that was 22, grandmother at his side FEEDING him soup, rubbing his back, he was in for cocaine withdrawal. I guess every family situation is different, but I know if I touched drugs or got hospitalized for anything to deal with drugs, my grandmother wouldn't be feeding me soup or rubbing my back, I'd get "the" lecture until the cows came home.
