A U.S. Justice Department study released in April, 2003 shows that 9% of American adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 years admit they meet the diagnostic criteria for lifetime substance abuse dependence for alcohol or drugs. That means well over 2.3 million of our middle school and high school kids are self-reported alcoholics and drug addicts.
The report, Youth Victimization:
Prevalence and Implications, a national survey
+ 5% of adolescent
women admit they are dependent on alcohol.
