DSCC’s Drugs and Smoking Tip Sheet for Teens
The Division of Specialized Care for Children (DSCC) created this tip sheet to help youth with special healthcare needs understand the importance of taking care of their bodies and knowing the facts about using tobacco, e-cigarettes, vaping, drugs and alcohol.
Medications, tobacco, street drugs, and alcohol are all chemicals that cause your body to react in different ways. Knowing what you are putting into your body and learning to say “no” to peer pressure are important steps in deciding what is right for you.
