Teen Substance Abuse is the act of teens showing dependence on drugs or alcohol or any harmful substance, and it is a serious problem in today’s society. This affects many teenagers in all aspects of life and harms their social life, home life, and negatively affects their health. While the use of opioids has fallen in recent years, other drugs have risen in popularity among teens. These include marijuana and vaping, the former is seen as a gateway drug and the latter statistically leads to the user being more likely to smoke cigarettes.
