- A Must-Have Drug Guide for Parents: Learn the Facts to Keep Your Teen Safe
Do you know the drugs that teens are abusing these days? Our research shows a significant increase in teens that see drug and alcohol use and “getting high” as acceptable in social situations. In fact, more teens are now using drugs to de-stress from pressures from school and extra-curricular activities than ever before.
With this growing number of teens using drugs and alcohol it’s more important than ever for parents to be knowledgeable and prepared.
A great first step is to learn the facts about the drugs that are in your teen’s world.
To help you, The Partnership at Drugfree.org has developed a handy Drug Guide presenting facts about the top 13 drugs abused by teens. You’ll find images of each drug, its street name, what it looks like, how it’s used/abused, what teens have heard about it, why it’s dangerous, the number of teens using it and signs of abuse to look for.
This is a must-have drug guide for all parents of teens. You can print it out, save it to your computer and forward it along to other parents you know.

More than 7 million copies have been distributed free to parents and educators by Anheuser-Busch and its nationwide network of wholesalers. Videos are available in Spanish and English.
