Harrison, Patricia A.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v21 n6 p529-39 Jun 1997
A study of 122,824 students in grades 6, 9, and 12 found that physical and sexual abuse were associated with an increased likelihood of the use of alcohol, marijuana, and almost all other drugs. Use of multiple substances was highly elevated among abuse victims, and they reported initiating substance abuse earlier. (Author/CR)
