Summary "The origins of illicit substance use during adolescence likely begin in early childhood. Understanding antecedent factors and how they ... lead to adolescent drug use is important for theories of social development as well as policy formulations to prevent onset. A dynamic cascade model of the development of adolescent substance-use onset is presented, based on a review of existing literature as well as on a longitudinal study involving 585 boys and girls who were followed from prekindergarten through grade 12."--Cf. p. vii.
