An Analysis of Drug Use Among Students in Seattle's High Schools. Report No. 80-4.
The findings of this analysis include the following: (1) the magnitude of drug use among students in Seattle's high schools; (2) the student characteristics associated with drug use; (3) the problems students attribute to drug use; (4) student attitudes toward drug education and treatment/prevention programs provided by schools; and (5) school personnel judged as good sources of help for drug-related problems. Results document the fact that many of the Seattle high school students are involved with drugs; those who are deeply involved do not appear to welcome intervention, whereas others show an interest in increased school involvement in drug education, treatment, and prevention.
