The National Institute on Drug Abuse for Teens website (NIDA for Teens) provides information about drug use and the brain. Get the latest on how drugs affect the brain and body. Featuring videos, games, blog posts and more. Take a poll, read a blog post, and get ideas for activities to use with teens. There’s lots of good news. Teens are using illicit drugs, other than marijuana, in decreasing numbers. Alcohol use has declined, cigarette and other tobacco products use is less, and heroin and other opioid use remains low among adolescents. The information came from more than 43,000 students in the 8th, 10th and 12th grades from 360 U.S. schools in 2017. The site also includes information about binge drinking, vaping, and inhalants; and article for parents and educators.
