Below are links to a series of brochures, Tips for Teens, that provide facts and dispel myths about substance use. Information is provided on long- and short-term effects, physical and psychological risks, and legal issues. As the titles indicate, the series is written for teens, but we think these brochures also are a great resource for adults. Please print them or order free copies by calling the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information (NCADI) at 1-800-729-6686; español: 1-877-767-8432; TDD: 1-800-487-4889. Share them with your middle school- or high school-aged child. Also visit the Drug Slang Dictionary for information on common drug
expressions and terms.
For more information on tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs, visit the NCADI Web site.
