Adolescent Depression, Alcohol and Drug Abuse.
Deykin, Eva Y.; And Others
American Journal of Public Health, v77 n2 p178-82 Feb 1987
Interviews of 434 college students revealed that prevalence of major depressive disorder (MDD) was 6.8 percent; of alcohol abuse, 8.2 percent; and of substance abuse, 9.4 percent. Alcohol and substance abuse were associated with MDD. Substance abuse was associated with other psychiatric diagnoses as well. MDD usually preceded alcohol or substance abuse, suggesting that self-medication was a causal factor. (KH)
