Breaking news: MORE teens report talking to their parents about the risks of drugs
The Partnership conducts a study every year that surveys thousands of teenagers across the country to track attitudes and use; this year, there are more teens who reported “learning a lot” about the risks of drugs from their parents -- 37% (an increase of 16% from the previous year).
Research consistently shows that teens who learn a lot about the risks of drugs at home are up to 50% less likely to use, yet many parents have difficulty talking with their kids about drugs and alcohol. A great resource we have is at timetotalk.org, with easy-to-use guides and tips to help maintain ongoing conversations with loved ones to be healthy and drug-free.
But that's not all the study found. Prescription drug abuse remains a threat --- learn more about the most recent facts about teen drug and alcohol use and what you can do here:
