Trends in Exposure to Substance Use Prevention Messages among Adolescents

Photo Credit:
  • Between the early 2000s and 2011, the percentages of adolescents reporting exposure to drug or alcohol use prevention messages in the past year through media and school sources generally declined
  • In 2011, 40 percent of adolescents did not talk with their parents about the dangers of substance use, and one quarter did not receive prevention messages through media or school sources
  • Adolescents aged 12 to 14 were less likely than those aged 15 to 17 to have received prevention messages through media sources and to have talked with a parent about the dangers of substance use but were more likely to have received messages through school sources and to have participated in a substance use prevention program outside of school
