Trends in Indian Adolescent Drug and Alcohol Use.
American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research, v5 n1 p1-12 1992
Overall drug use by Indian and non-Indian youth increased from 1975 to the early 1980s, then declined. Indian youth were consistently more involved with drugs than were non-Indians. Longitudinal data suggest a recent decline in drug use resulting from moderate users shifting to nonuse, but not heavy users. (SV)
