Prescription drugs are among the substances most often abused by teens, after tobacco, alcohol, and marijuana. Abusing prescription drugs, such as painkillers, depressants, and stimulants, can have severe short-term side effects as well as long-term health consequences. It can also result in dependence or addiction. This book raises awareness of the dangers of misusing prescription drugs. Personal stories are shared through sidebars and a substantial resource section complements the reading experience.
