Today’s teenagers are under tremendous pressure to succeed in every area of their lives. Teens, parents, and society value academic accomplishments, athletic achievements, and social popularity. To increase their energy for these endeavors, many teens take dangerous risks such as abusing stimulant drugs.

Though doctors sometimes order prescription stimulants for fatigue, depression, or sleep disorders like narcolepsy, these drugs are most commonly known for treating ADHD in teens. Stimulants activate a brain chemical called dopamine, which generates feelings of euphoria. These pleasurable responses account for the addictive properties of amphetamines and other stimulant drugs.
