College-Age & Young Adults

Illicit drug use has been rising steadily among college-aged young adults, mostly driven by increases in marijuana use.

This section features the most recent Monitoring the Future national survey results on drug use in this age group, as well as other links of interest to educators; dorm supervisors; counselors; clinicians and researchers who work with this age group, as well as the students themselves and their parents.
