The National Institute on Drug Abuse, a subset of the National Institutes of Health, released a responsive-design version of its teen-centric website, as well as published some of the materials in Spanish, as part of its support of October's National Substance Abuse Prevention Month.

The agency said the new website was designed to look more engaging, through touches such as more colorful buttons that link more quickly to information teens are looking for, in addition to links to longstanding resources like its teen blog about prescription drug abuse, PEERx.
