Drug-Taking Behavior Among School-Aged Youth : The Alaska Experience and Comparisons With Lower-48 States Paperback / softback

Description

Use this valuable knowledge about drug-taking behavior to plan strategies to prevent or reduce drug-taking among youth.

The findings from this unique study have important implications for researchers, educators, practitioners, and local and state policymakers and planners for the development of initiatives for addressing smoking, drinking, and drug use among early adolescents and teenagers.

The purpose of this informative volume is to further understand drug-taking behavior among adolescents by providing information on the prevalence, correlates, and consequences of drug-taking behavior among a large sample of adolescents.

Although the focus is on Alaska, the findings generalize to comparably aged youth in general; moreover, comparisons with findings from national studies and other states provide interesting results.
