|Résumé :||Adolescent substance use continues to be a serious public health and social problem. However, very little research has been conducted to understand substance use treatment for adolescents during the past thirty years. This study reports on adolescents in publicly funded AOD treatment programs from 1997-1999 (N = 4,733). Analyses are presented examining sex and ethic differences within this population. Females were more likely to report methamphetamine and males reported marijuana use. Females were more likely to report injection drug use; males were more likely to be mandated to treatment. Hispanic and African American youth were referred into treatment from criminal justice ; reported marijuana as the primary drug ; much less likely to be IDUs ; be mandated to treatment ; and released unsatisfactorily compared to white adolescents. Implications for future research and substance abuse treatment are discussed. (Editor's abstract.)|
