Bulletin Analyzes Co-occurrence of Substance-Related Behaviors

Source: JUVJUST, 11/14/2008
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has published “Co-occurrence of Substance Use Behaviors in Youth.”

The bulletin draws on data from the National Longitudinal Study of Youth to analyze the prevalence and overlap of substance-related behaviors among youth. The central finding of this analysis is that given one substance-related behavior, other substance-related behaviors become more likely.
