From breaking research on Rx stimulant abuse to a brand new, interactive toolkit for teens, check out what's going on at the Partnership this fall.
Survey: College Students & the Abuse of Rx Stimulants
This month, we released a new survey confirming that the abuse of prescription stimulants – medicines prescribed for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) – is becoming normalized among college students and other young adults. The study found that young adults often misuse and abuse these drugs as a way to manage the stress of academics, work and social pressures they face in their daily lives. The survey was released on November 13th at New York University.
Responding to the growing need for teen-targeted educational resources, we developed a new Above the Influence (ATI) Toolkit. This resource includes teen-informed activities that can be used with youth 12-17 years old to boost confidence and prevent risk-taking behaviors, including alcohol and drug abuse.
This toolkit is part of ATI, a program inspiring young people to make positive decisions and avoid negative influences. It offers individual and group activities that can help teens make healthier decisions with the support of adults who value them.

The contest, part of our new Above the Influence campaign, asks young musicians, ages 14 – 18, to compose or create an original song and/or music video that celebrates life above the influence or brings attention to the consequences of substance abuse.
