External Link: imdbAccording to The Lancet, one of the most prestigious medical journals in the world, U.S. teens have the highest rates of alcohol and drug abuse in the world. In addition, American teens are much more likely to be killed by violent means than their European peers. Another recent survey from the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University says about 17% of American high school students drink, smoke or use drugs during the school day. With these critical findings in mind, Lifetime has picked up the all-new gripping series “Teen Trouble,” an emotional, gut-wrenching alert for all families hosted by teen behavior specialist, author and motivational speaker Josh Shipp. In each episode of “Teen Trouble,” Shipp serves as the last hope for troubled families desperate to save their out-of-control teens and give them the critical help they need to avoid catastrophic tragedy. Shipp will embed himself into the hidden lives of at-risk teens on dangerous, self-destructive pathsâ€”taking drugs, stealing from their families, abusing alcohol and breaking the law. Shipp was born an orphan and bounced around in many different foster homes until he figured out how to turn a mess into a message. Shipp has been through it all and has an unconventional method to get through to teens and their parents.
