Sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll: are solutions possible?--A commentary
Journal/Book: Pediatrics. 1985; 76: 704-12.
Abstract: Understanding the demographics of teenage pregnancy and teenage drug abuse is far easier than thinking of solutions to either. Nevertheless, solutions--at least partial solutions- -do exist. Several successful programs and their essential components are discussed. Prevention of early teenage drug and sexual experimentation intersect in several key areas: the family, the media, the role of the physician, the appropriateness of prevention, and the need to understand what is normal adolescent behavior. Only when these dual problems are thoroughly understood and their etiologies in adult society are acknowledged will attempts at "solutions" be successful.
