Nearly all adults with substance use disorders began using addictive substances as teens. The adolescent brain is hardwired for risk-taking putting teens at the highest risk for problems related to substance use including addiction.

This webinar will review the new biology of addiction and the “hijacked" addicted brain. New data from two major national surveys of teen substance use will also be presented to discuss the importance in youth drug prevention.
