Guidelines for the Prevention of Substance Abuse in Adolescents

1. All chemicals are harmful to the body, at least to some extent (alcohol, for example, causes liver disease).

2. Relying on drugs to give you courage to solve problems (or help to forget you have problems) prevents you from learning to handle life situations and maturing.

3. To bottom line of drug abuse is that you have the final say: you are the only one who can stop chemical dependency from happening.

4. Whether the drug is inhaled, swallowed, or injected, it still is absorbed and enters your body.

5. Despite their social acceptability, alcohol and nicotine are drugs. A month of daily use of either can make you addicted.
