Overview

Explore the current literature on the origins of SUD!

With a multidisciplinary perspective, this unique book presents new data and integrates the current empirical literature on the causes and origins of substance use disorder (SUD)—genetic, endocrine, neurological, behavioral, family, and environmental factors. Here you’ll find a new theoretical framework that has been shown to have heuristic utility within a developmental model of SUD. In addition, Etiology of Substance Use Disorder in Children and Adolescents: Emerging Findings from the Center for Education and Drug Abuse Research delivers research results that demonstrate how to identify youths who are at high risk for SUD so that prevention techniques tailored to their needs can be implemented.

Etiology of Substance Use Disorder in Children and Adolescents explores topics such as:

  • the validity of the Drug Use Screening Inventory for predicting SUD
  • a new scale—the Dysregulation Inventory—to assess individuals’ risk for SUD
  • diachronic assessment
  • the relationship between the dopamine receptor D5 gene and substance dependence
  • the relationship between childhood dysregulation and tobacco smoking during adolescence
  • sexual maturation and sensation seeking in adolescent children of substance-abusing parents

    The mission of the Center for Education and Drug Abuse Research (CEDAR) is to delineate the etiology of substance use disorder. This book, examining several facets of CEDAR’s research program, keeps you on the leading edge of the field!

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Seeking to delineate the causes of "Substance Use Disorder," (SUD) the Center for Education and Drug Abuse Research (CEDAR) at the University of Pittsburgh conducts longitudinal investigations of youths from first exposure to diagnosis of SUD. Tarter and Vanyukov (both of CEDAR) present various facets of this research in the form of 13 papers discussing the measurement of SUD liability and etiological mechanisms. Among the possible causal factors investigated are cigarette smoking, sexual maturation, dopamine receptor levels, suicidality, and family drug use. Also published as Journal of Child & Adolescent Substance Abuse, vol. 10, no. 4 2001. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
