Helpful facts for New Zealand teenagers with questions about alcohol and drugs.

We all have a part to play in helping young people to live great lives without harm from alcohol and other drugs. Watch this video to see where the Did You Know series fits in the suite of resources that are available.

Did You Know makes it easy for young people to get the key facts about the potential impact from alcohol and other drugs. Every young person will make a decision about whether or not to use alcohol or drugs. Many will try them. Some will experience short-term harms. A few will develop long-term problems. An early conversation could make all the difference. 

Use the conversation planner to prepare a casual chat using Did You Know, and keep in mind that the conversation itself is more important than a particular outcome.
