“Drug abuse is at an all time high, but educating teens about drugs would help lower drug abuse rates.”
I’m really stuck so someone help me with form an introduction!

Best answer:

Answer by Rachel
Drug abuse by teens is at an all time high. Is a good first sentence. Just work off of that. Don’t say any solutions in the intro. Save that for the body of the essay. And in the conclusion you basically want to restate the intro but in different words.
