The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) will hold a press conference on Tuesday, December 14, to announce the results of its 2010 “Monitoring the Future” survey. Each year, this survey tracks drug abuse trends of students in 8th, 10th, and 12th grade, and includes attitudes and perceived risk of specific illicit drugs.
This survey is one of three major polling instruments that the Department of Health and Human Services uses to monitor the nation's substance abuse patterns. Information from these surveys helps identify potential drug problem areas, assess whether federal drug prevention efforts are effective, and ensure that resources are targeted to areas of greatest need.
