Drug Rehab in Kansas
Information provided in this page is the data described in
the Adolescent Behavioral Health reports derive principally
from national surveys conducted by the Office of Applied Studies,
a component of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services
Administration. Sources for all data used in this report appear
at the end.
Adolescence (12 to 17 years) is a critical and vulnerable
stage of human development, during which males and females
experience different biological, social, and cognitive changes.
During this life stage, millions of adolescents experiment
with substance use and engage in behaviors that can affect
healthy neurological and psychological development. Understanding
the behavioral health differences between adolescent males
and females can help to inform public health policy and build
prevention and intervention programs that strategically target
the different needs of adolescent males and females.
