Abstract

Drug abuse prevention among adolescents can be more effective if it is based on an accurate knowledge of the cultural context and of how young people actually think about the drags that are commonly used. A study was undertaken among Navajo adolescents to query their perceptions of using drugs, what the social context of their drug use is and, in particular, their perceptions of inhalants as substances that are used to induce intoxication.
