According to a recent guest speaker at Logan-Rogersville High School, the face of performance enhancing drug and appearance enhancing drug use among teenagers is not necessarily who you think.

“The fastest growing group of high school steroid users are freshman girls,” said Don Hooton Jr., director of business development for the Taylor Hooton Foundation.

“Not the kind of kid you think of doing something like this,” he told the students. Overachievers, though, are at high risk of being susceptible to performance- and appearance-enhancing drugs. “They think they are doing something healthy, getting their body in better shape.”
