Patten, Christi A.
Journal of Child and Adolescent Substance Abuse, v9 n4 p51-75 2000
Evaluates the appropriateness and feasibility of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in teenage smokers. Available forms of NRT, theoretical rationale and efficacy of NRT, ethical considerations, and the feasibility of NRT in teenage smokers are addressed. Several characteristics similar to adult nicotine dependent smokers have been found in teen smokers, thus forming the basis for the use of NRT in teenagers. (Author/MKA)
