National Institute on Drug Abuse to hold teleconference discussing key findings of 2019 Monitoring the Future Survey on teen drug use

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) will hold a teleconference on Wednesday, December 18, to discuss the results of the 2019 Monitoring the Future (MTF) survey. The survey, funded by NIDA and conducted by scientists at the University of Michigan, tracks annual drug use and attitudes among eighth, 10th, and 12th grade students. NIDA is part of the National Institutes of Health, within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

MTF – the only comprehensive federal government-funded survey on teen drug use that releases findings the same year the data is collected – will include findings on substance use and attitudes about e-cigarettes and vaping, marijuana, opioids and other prescription medications, heroin, ecstasy, cocaine, synthetic cannabinoids (K2/Spice), alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
