Teenagers & Substance Abuse discusses the scope of the substance abuse problem among teenagers and the types of drugs most commonly used by this age group. Collaborative efforts and strategies devised by schools, and private and public entities to stop illegal drug and alcohol use and the government's crackdown on the use of the internet to facilitate the production, use, and sale of "club drugs" is also discussed.
