Adam is a 16 year old high school student in a suburban neighborhood. Through the end of middle school, Adam was an A student, and had many strong friendships. Once he entered high school, things began to change. He started to be ridiculed by some of his classmates, and struggled to find a group of peers that he could relate to. His grades began dropping, and he became a C student. His teachers describe him as an intelligent individual, but one that appears to be shy and not highly motivated. Adamâ€s parents note that he has become more defiant, and has started spending time with peers who have a negative influence on him. His parents found vodka in his room, and also found marijuana one time. They tried to deal with his behavior in different ways from being very strict to very lenient, and everywhere in between. The counselor at Adamâ€s school has been meeting with him and describes him as someone who is trying to explore where he fits in and who he is as a person.
