With its collective expertise in the fields of substance abuse and educational research and policy, experts at the Institute for Behavior and Health, Inc. (IBH) and the Center on Young Adult Health and Development (CYAHD) at the University of Maryland School of Public Health investigated the connection between adolescent substance use and the risk for dropout in the U.S. During the last year, this group conducted a comprehensive review of the empirical research literature and policy-relevant documents, and consulted with clinicians, educators, and policy makers to gain a better understanding of the dropout crisis—its root causes, consequences, and what strategies are being used to address it. These activities covered a variety of disciplines including education, economics, sociology, psychology, and public health.
