NIDA Teens

The National Institute on Drug Abuse created this Website to give youth, ages 11 – 17, the facts about drugs and their effects on the brain and body. Designed for both teens and those who influence them—parents, guardians, teachers, and other educators—the science-based information and resources inspire learning and encourage critical thinking, so teens can make informed decisions about drug use and their health. A teen-focused blog, animated illustrations, interactive quizzes, and online games clarify concepts, test knowledge, and connect teens with the latest drug use research.
