Young People’s Concerns About Drugs And Alcohol – Findings From the Youth Survey 2014

Mission Australia, Australia

The Mission Australia survey collected responses from 13,600 young Australians aged 15-19 years on a broad range of issues, including concerns about alcohol and drugs.

‘Where a young person has problematic alcohol and drug use, youth specific facilities that address the comorbidity of mental health and substance abuse concerns are crucial. Young people with high levels of concern about alcohol and drugs may have additional challenges including problem gambling and a lack of job readiness. Providing additional supports to families and communities through early intervention programs may go some way to alleviating these issues.’
