    Hi,

    One of the major quagmires of the latter half of the 20th century was the question of how to warn adolescents of the dangers of drug experimentation; unfortunately, this is a problem which still plagues us well into the new millennium. A significant amount of funding has been funneled in to preventative campaigning and curricula, but it appears that the best way to reach American youths is to utilize school drug abuse education.

    Since teens spend roughly forty hours a week in school, school is an excellent place to communicate with them. School has the additional bonus of being a source of instruction and guidance which makes it appropriate for the goal of school drug abuse education. There is an increasing number of teens who believe that certain drugs, such as alcohol and marijuana, are generally harmless; it is important to use school drug abuse education to instruct them that these drugs can have an adverse effect upon their physical health and well being.

    Hi,

    Teens use alcohol and other drugs for many reasons. They may do it because they want to fit in socially, they like the way drugs or alcohol makes them feel, or they want to feel more grown up. Teens tend to be risk-takers, and they may take drugs or drink because it seems exciting. Teens who are at the biggest risk for developing serious alcohol or drug problems include those with family members who have problems with alcohol or other drugs. Also, teens who feel that they are not connected to or valued by their parents or who have poor self-esteem or emotional or mental health problems (such as depression) are at increased risk.
