Source Where Pain Relievers Were Obtained for Most Recent Nonmedical Use among Past Year Users Aged 12 or Older: 2008 81.7% of pain relievers obtained from friend/relative for free were obtained from one doctor. 1.6% were obtained from a drug dealer. 70% of Prescription Pain Relievers Used Non-Medically Come from Friends or Relatives Note: Totals may not sum to 100% because of rounding or because suppressed estimates are not shown.

  5. Question • Is early intoxication at age 15 correlated with an increase in the likelihood of alcohol dependence? • A. Yes • B. No 2012 NTBP SLC

  6. Age at Onset of Alcohol USE • First use of alcohol at under 15 y.o. predicts a fourfold increase in lifetime risk for alcohol dependence • Data gathered from US general population • Each year that first use is delayed results in decreased risk of alcohol dependence • Native American communities have varying but LOWER age at onset 2012 NTBP SLC

  7. Age at First INTOXICATION 2012 NTBP SLC

  8. Age at onset of alcohol DEPENDENCE • 2001-2002 NIAAA study • 40.000 face to face interviews • 4778 alcohol-dependent patients • 15% diagnosable <18 y.o. • 47% diagnosable <21 y.o. • 66% diagnosable <25 y.o. • Earlier onset predicts LESS likelihood of ever seeking treatment and MORE severe course 2012 NTBP SLC

  9. American Indians/Alaska Natives (AI/AN) adolescents and substance abuse • AI/AN adolescents have significantly higher rates of alcohol/drug use compared to other ethnic/racial groups in the U.S.(Dixon et al. 2007; Schinke et al. 2000; Spicer et al. 2003). • AI/AN also have the highest rates of commercialized tobacco use compared to other ethnic/racial groups in the U.S. • AI/AN youth experience more severe health, mental health, and social consequences related to alcohol/drug use including depression, conduct disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and suicidiality. • AI/AN youth have an earlier onset of drug/alcohol use compared to non-Native youth (Schinke et al. 2000; Spicer et al. 2003, Dixon, 2007). 2012 Symposia Medicus Pediatrics Conference

  10. Effects of alcohol/drug abuse among AI/AN adolescents • 78% of AI aged 12-17 have tried alcohol, compared with 53% of the general population (Cabape and Howley 1992; Spicer et al. 2003, Dixon, 2007). • 51-62% of AI youths have tried marijuana as compared to 28-50% from other racial/ethnic groups, although rates varied accordingly to tribe (IHS, 2005; NIAAA, 2002). • Deaths attributable to alcoholism among AI adolescents and young adults, ages 15-24 are more than 15 times the general U.S. population (Mitchell et al., 2004*). 2012 Symposia Medicus Pediatrics Conference

  11. Contributing factors of substance abuse among AI/AN adolescents • Low socioeconomic status • Family structure • Parental monitoring • History of family substance abuse • Neglect • Trauma • Urbanicity • Child abuse • Co-occurring mental health problems • Violence Exposure (Stiffman et al., 2007) 2012 Symposia Medicus Pediatrics Conference

  12. Historical Trauma and AI/AN Cultural Identity • Many U.S. historical actions, i.e., removals and relocation acts, have resulted in a fragmented AI/AN community • Many AI/ANs may have “lost” some of their cultural identity. • Lost of cultural identity may contribute to increased drug and alcohol use. • Conversely, strong cultural identification may help youth and adults to be less likely to use drugs/alcohol. • AI adolescents who identify with Indian culture may be less likely to be involved in alcohol use than those who lack this sense of identity. 2012 Symposia Medicus Pediatrics Conference

  13. Neurobiology of Alcohol • Ralph Hingson, Boston University School of Public Health and its Youth Alcohol Prevention Center. "This analysis suggests that interventions that delay drinking onset may not only reduce the acute consequences of drinking among youth, but may help reduce alcohol dependence among adolescents and adults" 2012 NTBP SLC

  14. Findings • 47% of who drank before age 14 developed alcohol dependence compared to 9% of those who started after age 21. • Survey with 43,000 adults • Reference:Hingson, R. W., Heeren, T., Winter, M. R. (2006) Age at Drinking Onset and Alcohol Dependence Age at Onset, Duration, and Severity. Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med., 160(7): 739-746. 2012 NTBP SLC

  24. Monitoring the Future2 46,500 students in the 8th, 10th, and 12th grade; 396 secondary schools 1. Usage levels for the various drugs by asking “On how many occasions (if any) have you used marijuana (a) in your lifetime? (b) during the past 12 months? (c) during the last 30 days” 2. Perceived risk is measured by a question asking “How much do you think people risk harming themselves (physically or in other ways), if they” “try marijuana once or twice,” 3. Disapproval is measured by the question “Do YOU disapprove of people doing each of the following?” 4. Availability Perceived availability is measured by the question “How difficult do you think it would be for you to get each of the following types of drugs, if you wanted some?” 2Johnston, L. D., O’Malley, P. M., Bachman, J. G., & Schulenberg, J. E. (2011). Monitoring the Future national results on adolescent drug use: Overview of key findings, 2010. 2012 NTBP SLC
