Adolescent Substance Use 101: Current Trends and the Impact of COVID-19

Description

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a major impact on the health and wellness of communities across the country, contributing to despair, loneliness and substance use in adolescents. What does the current data reveal about this issue? How are communities tackling the problem? What kind of long-term impact will COVID-19 have on this population?

Join us for “Adolescent Substance Use 101: Current Trends and the Impact of COVID-19” on Thursday, January 28, from 1-2 p.m. ET, as we discuss psychoactive substance use among adolescents. Together, we will explore the psychoactive substances most commonly used by adolescents, main mechanisms of action, reasons for use and COVID-19’s impact.
