Summary Youth are not only more likely than adults to engage in risky alcohol and drug use, but also disproportionately experience greater harms from that use (Adlaf, Begin, and Sawka, 2005). In addition, alcohol and drug use among adolescents has been found to negatively affect their ability to perform academically (Bryant, Schulenberg, O'Malley, Bachman, and Johnston, 2003; Cox, Zhang, Johnson, and Bender, 2007). Early experience with alcohol and drug use and hazardous patterns of drug-using behaviour during adolescence are serious risk factors for developing long-standing problems that continue into adulthood, including dependence and chronic disease. Further, it appears that substance use in adolescence - while the brain is still developing - is associated with an increased risk of mental health disorders (Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, 2007). In order to effectively address youth substance abuse, an understanding of the prevalence and patterns of use along with the risks and harms associated with youth alcohol and drug use is needed. Having findings/results from across Canada provides knowledge exchange opportunities across different regions and can help inform a national picture of student alcohol and drug use - one that can focus policy, research, prevention and treatment efforts across the country.
