2009 Parents and Teens Attitude Tracking Study

Reports findings from attitude tracking studies to better understand adolescent experiences with substance abuse. Data from two nationally projectable samples was used: a survey that measures attitudes and behaviors of parents with children ages 10 to 19 that relate to substance abuse and a teen sample for students in grades nine through 12. Findings linked several teen attitudes that were linked with increases in alcohol and drug use such as perceived peer approval of the behavior.
