Description of original award (Fiscal Year 1999, $600,000)

This project continues a major OJJDP-funded longitudinal study of alcohol, drug, and mental health (ADM) disorders among juvenile detainees. Between 1995 and 1998, baseline psychiatric interviews were conducted with 1,829 youth (1,172 males, 658 females) in detention. During the coming year, the investigators will continue to conduct an ongoing series of follow-up interviews with both the youth and (where appropriate) their caretakers. The researchers are also collecting service utilization data from a wide variety of agencies, such as the Illinois Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse, and the Illinois Department of Child and Family Services. Data collection from state and local institutions will continue during the coming fiscal year. The study has three primary goals: 1) to assess the developmental course of substance abuse and mental disorders in juvenile detainees; 2) to examine service availability, service use, and barriers to service access among juvenile detainees; and 3) to identify patterns of risky behavior in the areas of violence, substance use, and HIV/AIDS.
