Open Access Graduate Research Paper
As we near the close of the decade of the eighties and review gains and losses in the "war against drugs," several startling facts still loom as powerful reminders of the continuing problem our society has with drug use. Since 1 1960, all age groups in our society have experienced declining death rates with the exception of one group, the 15 to 24 year olds, whose overall death rate has increased (Ried, Martinson, & Weaver, 1987). A significant cause cited for this reverse trend among 15 to 24 year olds is the great number of alcohol related deaths due to accidents, suicide, and homicide.
