Teens and Nicotine

Nicotine’s impact on teens is often overshadowed by other drugs, but it is a serious issue. Each day in our country, more than 3,500 kids under the age of 18 try their first cigarette and another 1,000 become regular, daily smokers. Early exposure to nicotine has been linked to increased risk for mental health disorders, other drug and alcohol addictions, poorer academic achievement, and generally poorer health.

Teens and Nicotine explores current adolescent nicotine use trends; examines the link between adolescent smoking and other drug use and mental health disorders; and explains how cessation interventions, such as Project CONNECT®, can foster positive youth development and improve the school climate.

At Caron, we can help you build a treatment program that meets your needs.
