Abstract

Although the number of high school students who use illicit substances is somewhat lower than it was in the 1970s, adolescent use of illicit drugs continues to be of significant concern (see Dennis et al., 2003). Increasingly alarming is the fact that the purity and potency of drugs used by teens today has increased 19 to 49 percent, while prices have decreased dramatically (White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, 1998). In addition, only 1 percent of teens who have used illicit drugs report having received substance abuse This study was funded by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Administration-Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (SAMHSA-CSAT) grant # KD1 Til 1422. The opinions expressed in this paper are those of the authors and do not reflect the official position of SAMHSA-CSAT.
