Rethinking Drinking can help you get started at taking a look at your drinking habits and how they may affect your health. Drinking can be beneficial or harmful, depending on your age and health status, and, of course, how much you drink. For anyone who drinks, this site offers valuable, research-based information.
NIDA for Teens, Teachers, and Parents
This website is a project of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NIDA created this website to give youth ages 11 – 17 the facts about drugs and their effects on the brain and body. Designed for 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.
