Drugs and Your Body: Myths and Facts Unveiled

This is a Substance Use Awareness Program for Tweens/Teens. Drug abuse is a public health issue that has garnered much attention over the past few years. This program provides a way to increase awareness of how the use of different types of drugs affects the body.

The content from this session comes from the following agencies:

  • National Institutes of Health, National Library of Medicine (NIH, NLM)

In addition to the Drugs and Your Body program materials, there are links to other reliable resources from reputable agencies. You will also find activity and discussion ideas that can be used with any program on substance use that you may offer.

If you decide to offer this program at your organization, please let NNLM MAR know. We’d love to hear from you. Feel free to email nnlmmmar@pitt.edu and place Drugs and Your Body Program in the subject line.
