Alcohol use by adolescents is recognized to be mainly a social act. Disturbingly high levels of illicit drug use remain a problem among American teenagers. As the physical, social, and psychological “home away from home” for most youth, schools naturally assume a primary role in substance abuse education, prevention, and early identification.

Responding to these risks before they become problems can be difficult. By the mids, the introduction of crack cocaine turned youth drug use into a truly terrifying issue. Crack was cheap, plentiful and hideously addictive. By the last decade of the millennium, it appeared that fewer people were using drugs.

The dangers of these drugs are new to kids. In the future, the challenge for drug educators will be to inform kids about the very real. A survey by researchers at the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University found that teens who are regular users of social media are five times likelier to smoke, three times likelier to drink alcohol and twice as likely to use marijuana compared to teens who don’t use social media.
