Drug Abuse Among White Ethnic Adolescents.
Carlisi, John A.
Drug abuse among white ethnic adolescents is described in this report. Focusing on the framework of economic and social factors that affect the inner-city white adolescent, the report attempts to integrate this information with available mental health studies related to drug taking behaviors. The results from the National Polydrug Study which differentiated drug use by race are presented. In addition, the report reviews data gathered by the National Center for Urban Ethnic Affairs on white ethnic drug abuse. These two studies provide data on types of drugs used, frequency of use, sex and age of users, and use by each ethnic group. The report concludes that rates of drug use among white ethnic adolescents are as high as among non-whites. (Author/APM)
