Using a volunteer sample of 547 women prisoners, this study compares drug users and nondrug users, White and Black drug users, and multiple drug use by race. Drug users are significantly more likely to be older, have a lengthier history of involvement with the criminal justice system, be serving time for a drug-related offense, and report more physical and emotional abuse than are nondrug users. Black drug users are significantly more likely to have used cocaine and to be currently serving time for Larceny, whereas White drug users are more likely to use a variety of drugs and to report higher levels of abuse. It is found that for Black women, abuse and lower levels of self- esteem are correlated with multiple drug use, whereas among White women, multiple drug use is correlated with history of criminal justice system involvement. Although the number of women in U.S. state prisons is small compared to that of incarcerated men, the female inmate population has grown more rapidly than that of males every year since 1981 (Bureau of Justice, March, 1991). Women currently represent approximately 5.7 percent of the total inmate population in the United States; however, they comprise 12 percent of Oklahoma's prison population. For several years, the state of Oklahoma has led the nation in per capita rates of incarceration for women and its female inmate population literally doubled over a five year period (Oklahoma Department of Corrections, 1989).

    ADHD Drugs Do Not Increase Risk for Later Substance Abuse
    Stimulant medications used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children do not lead to substance abuse later in their lives, according to a Medical College of Wisconsin study released in 2003 and published in the journal Pediatrics The research findings are among the most recent in a growing body of evidence, supported by results from ten previous studies elsewhere, indicating that ADHD drugs do not "sensitize" children to drug use in general. "We found that maintenance on stimulant medication in childhood does not increase the risk for substance abuse in adolescence and young adulthood in individuals who have ADHD," said Mariellen Fischer, PhD

    70. Substance Abuse Treatment For Children And Adolescents: Questions To Ask - AACAP
    Many children and adolescents use alcohol and other drugs. Some develop seriousproblems which require professional help to control.
    S UBSTANCE A BUSE T REATMENT FOR C HILDREN AND A DOLESCENTS: Q UESTIONS TO A SK No. 41 (Updated November 2004) Many children and adolescents use alcohol and other drugs. Some develop serious problems which require professional help to control. Such as inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, twelve step programs, and dual diagnosis units for individuals with emotional and substance abuse problems. There are a variety of substance abuse treatment programs. The decision to get treatment for a child or adolescent is difficult, and parents are encouraged to seek consultation from a child and adolescent psychiatrist when making decisions about substance abuse treatment. Other psychiatric disorders often co-exist with substance abuse problems and need assessment and treatment. When substance abuse treatment is recommended, parents can obtain the information they need by asking the following questions from professionals:
  • Why do you believe this treatment in this program is indicated for my child? How does it compare to other programs or services which are available? What are the credentials and experience of the members of the treatment team, and will the team include a child and adolescent psychiatrist with knowledge and skills in substance abuse treatment?

    72. Teens: Alcohol And Other Drugs - AACAP Facts For Families # 3
    with a family history of substance abuse; who are depressed; who have lowselfesteem, and; who feel like they don’t fit in or are out of the mainstream
    T EENS: A LCOHOL A ND O THER D RUGS No. 3 (Updated July 2004) Teenagers may be involved with alcohol and legal or illegal drugs in various ways. Experimentation with alcohol and drugs during adolescence is common. Unfortunately, teenagers often don’t see the link between their actions today and the consequences tomorrow. They also have a tendency to feel indestructible and immune to the problems that others experience. Using alcohol and tobacco at a young age increases the risk of using other drugs later. Some teens will experiment and stop, or continue to use occasionally, without significant problems. Others will develop a dependency, moving on to more dangerous drugs and causing significant harm to themselves and possibly others. Adolescence is a time for trying new things. Teens use alcohol and other drugs for many reasons, including curiosity, because it feels good, to reduce stress, to feel grown up or to fit in. It is difficult to know which teens will experiment and stop and which will develop serious problems. Teenagers at risk for developing serious alcohol and drug problems include those:

    Research Fellow
    • Introduction
    • Definitions
    • Linking Child Maltreatment and Substance Abuse
      INTRODUCTION Though interest in substance abuse and family violence have developed relatively independently, even in ancient times there were references to the 'devastating effects of substance abuse on families' (Russell 1995, p.247). The perception that substance abuse had a detrimental effect on families has strengthened over time. Gelles (1993) cites William Hogarth's early 18th century etching entitled, Gin Lane, which portrays the maltreatment that may befall children reared by alcohol-abusing parents. A century later, social workers in the United States firmly believed that alcohol was the cause of child maltreatment, an assumption which, in part, lead to the Prohibition Movement experienced by the United States in the 1920s (Gelles 1993). In the decades since, the 'demon rum' explanation for violence and abuse in the home has become one of the 'most pervasive and widely believed explanations for family violence in the professional and popular literature' (Gelles 1993, p.182). There has been some support for this contention, with research investigating homicide, assault and domestic violence all producing substantial associations between alcohol abuse and violence (Gelles 1993).
