Did you know the prescription drug abuse problem in America has reached what the White House calls “epidemic proportions?” To help teens understand what prescription drug abuse can do to the brain and body, NIDA has created a PEERx Web site containing science-based information about the problem.

The PEERx Web site also offers free downloads, including iron-ons to make your own t-shirts and accessories, stickers, posters, avatars, and other cool stuff. So, express yourself and help spread the word, too.

Share this site with your friends, and let us know which downloads are your favorites. NIDA wants to know what works or doesn’t work for getting important health information to teens.
