This volume of abstracts of major research and theoretical studies dealing with the relationship between drug use, criminal behavior and the law is concerned with criminal acts other than the possession of, or trafficking in, illicit drugs. Included are 107 selected studies categorized into seven major topic areas: Reviews and Theories, Drug Use and Criminal Behavior, Addiction and Criminal Behavior, Drugs and Delinquency, Crime and Female Drug Use, The Impact of Treatment Modalities and The Economics of Drugs and Crime. Some critical issues explored by the studies are raised in the following questions: (1) What kinds of crimes are committed by what types of drug users? (2) Is crime a necessary corollary to drug use? (3) What impact have changes in drug laws had on criminal behavior? Each abstract includes methodology, results and conclusions. Materials were identified through a comprehensive literature search of major clearinghouses, data bases, library collections and special bibliographies. (Author/EV)

Alcohol consumption among youth : current trends and research findings by Gregory A Austin( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This update offers current knowledge about the scope and nature of adolescent drinking. Its goal is to bridge the communications gap between the researcher, the practitioner, and the general population by disseminating research findings in an accessible manner and by providing an introductory review of the significance of these findings. Abstracts are provided for a wide cross-section of 36 studies published since 1990 on adolescent drinking, use correlates and risk factors, and prevention program evaluations. Summarized and assessed are recent survey data, the major sources of the survey data, and trends. The epidemiological literature is reviewed in regard to three related questions: (1) How many primary and secondary school youth are drinking and how much are they consuming? (2) What are the patterns and effects of use? and (3) What are the current trends? In spite of extensive research in this area, gaps and inconsistencies in findings are apparent. Even so, today's youth use alcohol more than illicit drugs and a substantial proportion of high school students are drinking regularly and heavily. As for prevention, results indicate that a prevention curriculum's potential effectiveness is partly a function of the substance addressed and that successful strategies against one drug may not succeed against other drugs. (Contains over 300 references.) (RJM)
