    I think the best approach would is for parents to confront their son about those pills. Encourage to open up to them and if he admits he has a problem, then next step would be to get help. But if he denies it and he's not showing any signs of addiction, then it's best to let it go.

    Florence Nightingale and her environmental theory state that a change in environment can create as much as relief as medications. I firmly believe that to be true. For me, a simple change such as opening the curtains and windows and feeling the breeze touch my skin, it immediately alleviates my depression and anxiety. Try it, it might be something that might help dealing with the condition. It sure worked for me.
