Teenage drug use is a serious and often tragic problem that continues to affect more and more families every single day. When a parent has the nagging feeling or suspicions but they are not sure if their teen has a problem with drugs, they often have no idea of what they should do to find out for sure. Because a majority of the conversations and text messages that teens engage in with their friends and other people are usually done on their cell phone, questions of suspicious behavior can often be answered when a parent chooses to recover deleted text from a Blackberry or other type of cell phone that their teen uses.
Whether you have concerns that your teenager may be experimenting with the use of illegal drug substances, you suspect that they are sending inappropriate sext messages to another boy or girl that they are involved with, or you believe that bullying may be a serious problem that you need to address, a cell phone forensic investigation is one of the best and most effective investigative tools available to parents that find themselves facing these worrisome situations.
Illegal drugs that are being used by many teens and even parent’s prescription drugs that they are conveniently finding in their very own homes are serious situations that all parents need to stay on top of in the endless battle against drugs in our society today. Although it would be a huge advantage if parents could rely on their kids owning up to any involvement they have with drugs, most teens are generally not going to admit to any form of drug use they may be partaking in or experimenting with. This is the very reason why parents should recover deleted text messages and other data from their child’s Blackberry or other cell phone when teen drug use is suspected.
A cell phone forensic investigation is an effective tool that can provide concerned parents with many forms of helpful data, even if the information has previously been deleted from the cell phone. Some items that can be recovered includes SMS, text and sext messages, events and notes that have been entered into the cell phone’s calendar, names and telephone numbers of your teen’s contacts, email addresses of friends and contacts, photographs and graphics, detailed call log information of calls that have been made and received, and several other different types of informative data.
