In years past, "Just Say No!" was the foundation of for addressing substance use and misuse in teens. However, effective substance management involves informing teens about their effects and risks. Frequently misused substances include marijuana, alcohol, prescription medication, cough medicine, and hallucinogens. Misuse can lead to addiction, resulting in other social and medical risks. 


The College of Physicians of Philadelphia offers resources drawing upon healthcare professionals in the field to help teens better understand their personal health and development.
