American Youths' Access to Substance Abuse Treatment: Does Type of Treatment Facility Matter?
Lo, Celia C.; Cheng, Tyrone C.
Journal of Child & Adolescent Substance Abuse, v22 n3 p191-213 2013
Using data from the 2007 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, this study examines whether several social exclusion and psychological factors affect adolescents' receipt of substance abuse treatment. Multinomial logistic regression techniques were used to analyze data. The study asked how the specified factors provide pathways to receipt of specialty and non-specialty substance abuse treatment, as compared to receiving no treatment. The results suggest that, for adolescents, there are racial/ethnic, gender, and socioeconomic differences in receiving substance abuse treatment; there is also a role played by race/ethnicity in income's effect on treatment receipt. Policy implications are briefly discussed. (Contains 4 tables.)
