Research Into Action Webinar: Youth Substance Use Data Support a Common Liability of All Drug Use

Wednesday, October 23, 2019 – CADCA is proud to present this installment of its Research Into Action webinar series featuring Dr. Robert DuPont, Dr. Caroline DuPont, and Dr. Bertha Madras discussing their recent article, “Drug use among youth: National survey data support a common liability”, which was published in Preventative Medicine in 2018. Dr. DuPont, Dr. DuPont, and Dr. Madras discussed their article’s findings regarding the effects of the use of one substance on the probability of use of other substances among adolescents. The article found that youth who used cigarettes, marijuana, or alcohol in the past month were more likely to also report using another substance than non-using youth. Dr. DuPont, Dr. DuPont, and Dr. Madras also discussed the implications their findings have for coalition work and how coalitions can promote a message of no use of any substance among youth.
