Drug Tests or Self Reports?

A new publication, Comparing Drug Testing and Self-Report of Drug Use among Youths and Young Adults in the General Population, provides data comparing the accuracy of self-reported drug use with actual drug tests for tobacco, marijuana, and other drugs.

The drug tests revealed that most persons age 12 to 25 reported their recent drug use accurately to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health.

The publication, from SAMHSA’s Office of Applied Studies (OAS), is available for download on the OAS Web site at www.oas.samhsa.gov/validity/drugTest.pdfEnd of Article
