Drug Use and African Americans: Myth versus Realities.
Burston, Betty Watson; And Others
Journal of Alcohol and Drug Education, v40 n2 p19-39 Win 1995
Aggregate data on drug use may be misleading relative to the magnitude of the problem among specific segments of the population. This paper analyzes several false but commonly held beliefs about drug use in the African American community reflected in the literature and explores the implications of such beliefs for treatment, intervention, and public policy.
