Drug use in 17-year-olds: analysis of the 2017
Tendances n° 123, OFDT, 8 p.
For the ninth time since the implementation of the ESCAPAD survey, the French Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (OFDT) and the Youth and National Service Directorate of the Ministry of the Armed Forces interviewed a sample of young people aged 17 years, taking part in the National Defence and Citizenship Day (JDC). In March 2017, 46,054 young participants completed an anonymous questionnaire on their health and psychoactive substance use. Since the first edition of ESCAPAD, in 2000, nearly 240,000 adolescents have been interviewed in this way. This survey, unusual owing to its large sample size, has proven to be a valuable instrument for shedding light on the evolution of substance use and addictive behaviours in late adolescence in France.
