Inhalant Use Drops Among 12-13 Year Olds
Inhalant Prevention Coalition analyzed the results of
the 2000 National Household Survey and finds some encouraging
news! Among youths aged 12 and 13, the rate of past month
inhalant use dropped from 1.3% in 1999 to 0.7% in 2000.
This is a scientifically
significant drop and is cause for both celebration and hope.
Since inhalants are often the first substance of use and the
tendency to use inhalants decreases as a child gets older,
NIPC projects that this could lead to further overall decreases
in inhalant use over time.
