Cigarette Smoking Among Adolescents With Alcohol and Other Drug Use Problems
Substantial progress has been made in developing prevention programs for adolescent drug abuse. This article reviews the epidemiology, etiologic risk and protective factors, and evidence-based approaches that have been found to be most effective in preventing adolescent substance use and abuse. Exemplary school and family-based prevention programs for universal everyone in population , selected members of at-risk groups , and indicated at-risk individuals target populations are reviewed, along with model community-based prevention approaches. Challenges remain in widely disseminating evidence-based prevention programs into schools, families, and communities. Substance use and abuse continue to be important public health problems that contribute greatly to morbidity and mortality rates throughout the United States, Canada, and globally. For several decades, substantial research efforts have been undertaken to understand the epidemiology and etiology of substance use and abuse.
Substance abuse , also known as drug abuse , is use of a drug in amounts or by methods which are harmful to the individual or others. It is a form of substance-related disorder. Differing definitions of drug abuse are used in public health, medical and criminal justice contexts. In some cases criminal or anti-social behaviour occurs when the person is under the influence of a drug, and long term personality changes in individuals may occur as well. Drugs most often associated with this term include: alcohol , amphetamines , barbiturates , benzodiazepines , cannabis , cocaine , hallucinogens , methaqualone , and opioids.
Selected indexing terms included substance abuse prevention , risk factors , and protective factors. Research monographs from the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention were used, along with information from authors of prevention curricula. Studies of adult patients that investigated predisposing risk factors for substance abuse eg, genetic implications were also used. Care was taken to ensure studies included children from diverse racial and social backgrounds. Controlled random-designed studies were used to determine prevention program efficacy. Behavioral, emotional, and environmental factors that place children at risk for the development of substance abuse may be remediated through prevention and intervention programs that use research-based, comprehensive, culturally relevant, social resistance skills training and normative education in an active school-based learning format.
Evidence-Based Interventions for Preventing Substance Use Disorders in Adolescents
The mission of the National Institute on Drug Abuse NIDA is to advance science on the causes and consequences of drug use and addiction and to apply that knowledge to improve individual and public health. In this regard, NIDA addresses the most fundamental and essential questions about drug abuse — from detecting and responding to emerging drug abuse trends and understanding how drugs work in the brain and body, to developing and testing new approaches to treatment and prevention. NIDA also supports research training, career development, public education, public-private partnerships, and research dissemination efforts. Through its Intramural Research Program, as well as grants and contracts to investigators at research institutions around the country and overseas, NIDA supports research to:. In line with these goals, NIDA works to ensure that the following cross-cutting themes are addressed across institute programs and initiatives:.

Check out our interactive infographic to see progress toward the Substance Abuse objectives and other Healthy People topic areas. Reduce substance abuse to protect the health, safety, and quality of life for all, especially children. In , an estimated 22 million Americans struggled with a drug or alcohol problem. Almost 95 percent of people with substance use problems are considered unaware of their problem.
Schools are an important setting for interventions aimed at preventing alcohol use and abuse among adolescents. A range of school-based interventions have been developed to prevent or delay the onset of alcohol use, most of which are targeted to middle-school students. Not all interventions that have been developed and implemented have been found to be effective. In-depth analyses have indicated that to be most effective, interventions should be theory driven, address social norms around alcohol use, build personal and social skills helping students resist pressure to use alcohol, involve interactive teaching approaches, use peer leaders, integrate other segments of the population into the program, be delivered over several sessions and years, provide training and support to facilitators, and be culturally and developmentally appropriate.
Cigarette and alcohol use often develop concurrently, and smoking is especially common among youth treated for alcohol and other drug AOD use disorders. Special considerations for adolescent smoking cessation treatment include peer influences, motivation, and nicotine dependence. Little research has addressed smoking cessation treatment for youth with AOD use disorders, but the few available studies suggest that tobacco cessation efforts are feasible and potentially effective for this population. Findings to date suggest that adolescents with AOD use disorders may benefit more from relatively intensive multicomponent programs rather than brief treatment for smoking cessation. Additional research is needed to further address the inclusion of tobacco-specific interventions for adolescents in AOD use disorder treatment programs.
Substance abuse and addiction cause serious health-related problems for many people, including those living with HIV. The World Health Organization WHO reports that the harmful use of alcohol resulted in three million deaths around the world in The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime estimates that, of the million users of street drugs worldwide, some 31 million had problems with drug use in In the past decade, the negative health impact of street drug use has increased more rapidly among women than men across the globe. According to WHO, about 13 million people worldwide inject drugs.
