Peers have tremendous influence on each other. This applies to virtually every aspect of personal experience, including individual and shared attitudes, choices and beliefs. The resources we’re offering here provide science-based information about alcohol and other drugs that we hope young minds will use to make decisions as well as influence the decisions of people they care about. Also, we’re including blogs from area youth whose experiences with addiction have motivated them to “pass on” the wisdom derived from their experience.
