- Chapter 1Explains the short- and long-term consequences of alcohol and other drug use, as well as the basic signs of harmful use and addiction.
- Chapter 2Reveals how alcohol and other drug use affects the developing brain and body, covering all major drugs but with specific emphasis on alcohol, prescription drugs, marijuana, and synthetic drugs.
- Chapter 3Outlines strategies that have been proven to prevent or reduce alcohol or other drug use, such as finding positive alternatives to use and learning refusal skills.
- Chapter 4Focuses on how to get help and what the treatment experience is like.
