DRUG/ALCOHOL ABUSE

  • DrugFree.org is a site that has information on drugs, alcohol, and teens. It contains video clips, quizzes, and advice.
  • The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), created this Web site to educate adolescents ages 11 through 15 (as well as their parents and teachers) on the science behind drug abuse. NIDA enlisted the help of teens in developing the site to ensure that the content addresses appropriate questions and timely concerns.
  • Smoking and Tobacco Use Prevention - You can order up to 5 free publications from the Centers for Disease Control. These include posters, DVDs and many other items. I ordered some posters with Jackie Chan, Tony Hawk and Christy Turlington for the High School.
