Drug & Alcohol Use Among Young Adults: 2020 Monitoring the Future Survey Results


The annual NIH-supported survey revealed changing substance use trends among college students and college-aged adults. Find key results for primary care in our quick slideshow.

The annual Monitoring the Future (MTF) survey has tracked substance use and related factors among US adolescents, college students, and adult high school graduates for several decades. It is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and conducted by the University of Michigan. The 2020 MTF results were recently released, and revealed just how much the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted substance use among college-aged Americans in particular.

Data was collected online from 1550 college and noncollege youth aged 19-22 years between March 20, 2020 and November 30, 2020. Key findings include historically high levels of marijuana use, rise in hallucinogen use, and declines in alcohol consumption among young adults. More information in the slides below.
