Course Summary

Substance abuse and addiction, whether to alcohol, illicit drugs, or other substances, is harmful to those of any age, but is particularly damaging to adolescents. Teens across various socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds abuse drugs and alcohol. This leads to physical or psychological problems and can also affect a teen’s learning abilities, capacity to retain and remember information, and activities and relationships with family and peers. Also, teens who start to use alcohol or tobacco or to experiment with certain types of drugs are at higher risk of moving on to other drugs and further increasing their risks of addiction.
