Young people and Addictions: an overview
Tendances n° 114, OFDT, 4 p.
Over the past twenty years, numerous undertakings by the French Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (OFDT) have focused on juvenile behaviours. A collective OFDT publication entitled Jeunes et addictions has just been published in French. This study of substance use throughout adolescence and early adulthood is essential as this is when certain addictive behaviours begin and can sometimes become established, based on initiation and experiences. This collective publication provides an analysis of psychoactive substance use and its impact according to a continuum covering nearly 15 years of life: from 11 to 25 years, i.e. approximately 12 million individuals in France.
Authors : François Beck, Julie-Émilie Adès, Aurélie Lermenier-Jeannet and Agnès Cadet-Taïrou, Olivier Le Nézet, Carine Mutatayi, Marcus Ngantcha, Ivana Obradovic
