Abstract: Brief article on substance abuse rates by Hispanic teens. This population is more likely to use drugs (primarily marijuana and prescription drugs) than other teens. Of particular concern is the increasing use of prescription drugs, which has nearly doubled since 2007. By adulthood, drug use rates have declined, and Hisanpic adults are less likely to use illicit drugs than other adults -- but still more likely to binge drink.

Abstract: Breve artículo sobre el uso de drogas sin receta para mejorar el rendimiento por atletas adolescentes. Aunque tanto los esteroides como efedra ahora son ilegales o disponibles solo bajo receta, ciertos precursores y medicamentos herbales todavía están disponibles.

Abstract: Statistics on the prescribing of narcotic pain relievers and benzodiazapines, broken down by state. Figures are given on a per-capita basis. American use more prescription narcotics than the residents of any other country with doctors writing a staggering 82 narcotics prescrpitions and 37 benzodiazapine prescriptions per year per 100 residents. (More than twice as many, per capita, than Canada, which comes in second.), Alabama ranked #1 for opioid pain relievers; Maine for 'long-acting extended release opioid pain relievers' (i.e. Oxycontin), Deleware for 'high dose opioid pain relievers', and West Virginia for benzodiazapines. Lowest rates were seen in Hawaii, (for opioids and benzodiazapines) and Texas (for long acting and high dose opioids.) Indiana ranked 9th for opioids, and middle-of-the-range for others.

Abstract: Australia is dealing with a serious oxycontin addition problem. Both recreational users who doctor shop and/or buy the drug on the street, and ordinary citizens who are prescribed the drug for legitimate pain commonly find themselves addicted and unable to stop using. 2 million prescriptions for the drug are written each year (in a country of 22 million people) and pharmacies lack the ability to monitor these prescriptions to detect doctor shoppers or fraudulent prescriptions. Individuals profiled in the video include a former dealer who was able to easily scam prescriptions by claming back pain, or steal prescription pads (he eventually did jail time and is now off drugs, but his health is ruined), and a middle class woman who became addicted after being prescribed the drug for real back pain. (After a suicide attempt and treatment, she too is off the drug.) Prescription drug abuse is an especially serious problem in small towns, where illicit narcotics are not sold. Experts are beginning to educate doctors are how to recognize doctor shoppers, and encouraging them to look for other ways of managing chronic pain. The need for computerized prescription monitoring is also discussed.

Abstract: The state of Massachusetts has one of the highest rates of heroin addiction in the country, and overdose deaths now exceed those relaeted to auto accidents. (Over 3200 deaths over a 5 year period between 2002 and 2007.) Many addicts got started on their addiction through Oxycontin. This documentary puts a very human face on the problem by following two young addicts as they first became addicted, and have tried repeatedly to get clean. Frank was a high school athlete, pescribed the drugs to deal with the pain after a serious injury. He quickly became addicted to the prescribed meds, and when his doctor reduced his dose, began buying the pills on the street, stealing money from family and friends to cover the$60-$80 per pill cost. After a few months he was introduced to heroin, and found it to be a faster and much cheaper fix. Rebecca also became addicted in high school, introduced to oxycontin, and then to heroin, by her drug using/dealing boyfriend. With doctors in Massachuesetts now less likely to prescribe the pills, and many pharmacies no longer stocking them (after repeated robberies), most street-pills are now brought in from Florida, where they are easier to get. In an attempt to reduce the devastating death toll, some people have turned to a harm-reduction approach, providing Narcan to the family and friends of addicts. But the overall problem of addiction shows no signs of going away, or even declining. (Both young people profiled had relapsed by the end of the video, and were back on drugs.)

Abstract: Este video (transmitido originalmente en "Frontline") examina el creciente diagnóstico y creciente uso de medicación para el tratamiento de trastornos psiquiátricos graves en los niños. El trastorno bipolar, en particular, se está diagnosticando con mayor frecuencia; a partir de 2007 había más de 1 millón de niños en los Estados Unidos, algunos tan jóvenes como de 4 años de edad, siendo medicados por el trastorno. Este aumento de diagnóstico vino después que un grupo de investigadores en Massachusetts publicó un estudio en el cual sugirieron que muchos niños diagnosticados con ADHD tienen BPD. Porque no hay ninguna forma clara de diagnosticar BPD, especialmente en niños pequeños, los niños a menudo están marcados con el desorden basado en creencias del médico y una variedad de síntomas clínicos. Y porque la mayoría de los medicamentos no han sido adecuadamente probados (o probados del todo) en niños, la prescripción de medicamentos es también una cuestión de ensayo y error. Algunos niños presentados en el video han tenido hasta 8 medicamentos diferentes al mismo tiempo, con algunos de los fármacos prescritos únicamente para tratar los efectos secundarios de otros medicamentos. Incluso algunos médicos se inclinan hacia prescribir aún más medicamentos, recomendando dosis preventivas para niños mostrando los primeros síntomas que algún día podrían llegar a ser un verdadero trastorno psiquiátrico.///This video (originally aired on ""Frontline"") examines the increased diagnosis, and increasing use of medication to trea,t serious psychiatric disorders in children. Bipolar disorder in particular is being diagnosed more and more frequently. As of 2007 there were over a million children in the U.S, some as young as 4 years old, . being medicated for the disorder. This increase in diagnosis came after a group of researchers in Massachusetts published a study in which they suggested that many children diagnosed with ADHD actually have BPD. Because there is no clear way of diagnosing BPD, especially in young children, children are often labeled with the disorder based on beliefs of the doctor and a variety of clinical symptoms. And because most medications have not been adequated tested (or tested at all) in children, prescribing meds is also a matter of trial and error. Some children profiled in the video have been on as many as 8 different meds at one time, with some of the drugs prescribed solely to treat side effects of other medications. Yet some doctors are leaning towards prescribing even more medications, recommending preventive dosing for children showing early symptoms that might some day progress to a full-blown pysyciatric disorder.

Abstract: Este estudio examinó la influencia de la raza y la etnicidad en el consumo de drogas por estudiantes universitarios. Unos 4.600 alumnos en una gran universidad del medio oeste completaron una encuesta basada en la web que le preguntó sobre el uso de drogas y alcohol, así como datos demográficos generales. El estudio encontró que los estudiantes varones eran significativamente más propensos que las mujeres a usar drogas o alcohol, y que los estudiantes hispanos/latinos y blancos tenían tasas más altas de uso que los estudiantes afroamericanos y asiáticos. El 48% de los estudiantes varones hispanos y el 43% de los estudiantes masculinos blancos informaron el mes pasado uso de una droga ilícita o el uso indebido de medicamentos recetados, en comparación con el 28% de los estudiantes varones asiáticos y el 36% de los hombres afroamericanos. La Marihuana, sola o en combinación fue por mucho la droga ilícita más comúnmente usada, seguido por uso indebido de medicamentos recetados.///This study examined the influence of race and ethnicity on drug use by college students. About 4,600 students at a large midwestern university completed a web-based survey which asked about drug and alcohol use as well as general demographic data. The study found that male students were significantly more likely than females to use drugs or alcohol, and Hispanic and white students had higher rates of use than African-American and Asian students. 48% of Hispanic male students and 43% of white male students reported past-month use of an illicit drug or the misuse of prescription drugs, compared with 28% of Asian male students and 36% of male African-Americans. Marijuana, alone or in combination was by far the most commonly used illicit drug, followed by misused prescription drugs.

Abstract: El uso ilícito de drogas varía significativamente por raza (incluso latinos) y ubicación. Los investigadores dividieron las áreas en 3 categorías: grandes condados metropolitanos, pequeños condados metropolitanos y condados no-metropolitanos. El uso de todas las drogas ilícitas, de marihuana y el uso no médico de drogas de prescripción eran todos más comunes en los condados metropolitanos pequeños y menos común en los condados no metropolitanos. Cualquier uso de drogas (incluyendo el uso no médico de drogas recetadas) era más común entre las personas de raza mixta, seguidas de cerca por los nativos americanos y hawaianos/isleños del Pacífico. Era menos común entre los asiáticos.///Illicit drug use varies significantly by race and location. Researchers divided areas into 3 catagories: large metropolitan counties, small metropolitan counties, and non-metropolitan counties. Use of all illicit drugs, of marijuana, and non-medical use of prescritpion drugs were all most common in small-metropolitan counties and least common in non-metropolitan counties. Any drug use (including non-medical use of prescription drugs) was most common among mixed race individuals, followed closely by Native Americans and Hawaiin/Pacific-Islanders. It was least common among Asians.

Abstract: EL estudio examina el uso de estimulantes con prescripción entre los estudiantes universitarios, con énfasis en cómo y por qué los usan. Una muestra aleatoria de 4580 estudiantes asistiendo a una Universidad grande del medio oeste completó una encuesta por la web sobre consumo de sustancias. Para este documento, los investigadores se centraron en los uso de estimulantes con prescripción. El uso de por vida de las drogas fue reportado por cerca de 8% de los sujetos y el uso en el año pasado un 6%. Adderall o medicamentos similares fue utilizado por más del 75% de los usuarios, con Ritalin, Concerta o drogas similares utilizados por cerca de 25%. Los caucásicos son más propensos que otros grupos raciales/étnicos a usar la droga. Sobre 90% tomó los medicamentos por vía oral, pero aproximadamente 1/3 reportaron aspirar o inhalarlos. La mayoría de los estudiantes que utiliza las drogas informó usarlos como ayuda para el estudio, para ayudarles con la concentración del estado de alerta. Aproximadamente el 30% dijo que los utilizaban de forma recreativa y/o para drogarse.///Study examines the use of prescription stimulants among college students, with a focus on how and why they use them. A random sample of 4580 students attending one large midwestern university completed a web-based survey on substance use. For this paper, researchers focused on the use prescription stimulants. Lifetime use of the drugs was reported by about 8% of subjects, and past year use by 6%. Adderall or similar drugs was used by over 75% of users, with Ritalin, Concerta or similar drugs used by about 25%. Caucasians were more likely than other racial/ethnic groups to use the drug.
