Fors, Stuart W.; Rojek, Dean G.
Journal of Drug Education, v21 n1 p13-25 1991
Determined drug use and abuse patterns of homeless/runaway youths (n=253) and compared them to similar data collected from adolescents in school. Comparisons showed that drug use and abuse was two to three times more prevalent for runaways than for school youths. Runaways' attitudes toward selected illicit behaviors were more tolerant than those of school youths. (Author/NB)
