Abstract

One thousand nine hundred Israeli adolescents-51.8% males and 48.2% females - aged 15 to 18, were questioned twice about their current and "ever" substance use. The first study was undertaken during September-October 1982 and the second about a year later. The findings clearly indicated a slight rise in the incidence and a moderate growth of the prevalence of substance use among Israeli adolescents. The relationships between substance use and several background sociodemographic variables that were studied are discussed. Since the early 1970s several surveys estimated the extent of psychoactive drug use among Israeli adolescents. Table 1 summarizes these studies until 1982.
