A study examining substance use problems in the Asian American community surveyed 87 Indian, Vietnamese, and Chinese American youths and young adults. Findings indicated more awareness of drinking problems than drug use problems. Although respondents showed positive attitudes toward treatment, behaviors suggested a tendency to utilize personal resources rather than professional help. Implications for culturally relevant interventions and prevention are discussed. (Contains 30 references.) (TD)
