Frissell, Susan
Journal of Adolescent Chemical Dependency, v2 n2 p1-7 1992
Contends that adolescent and elderly populations both exhibit attitudes, behavior, feelings, and reasons for alcohol and drug abuse that appear to be similar. Suggests that study of pediatrics can play role in development of geriatric movement by sharing common issues of both groups. Applies Erikson's stages of development to illustrate similarity of needs between adolescent and elderly populations. (Author/NB)
