Perspectives of U.S. Adolescents on Diverted Stimulant Use

CONCLUSIONS: The perspectives of a national sample of youth suggest that stimulant diversion continues to be a significant problem among American youth, with many noting that diverted stimulants are easy to obtain and are used to self-treat mental health issues. Standardized interventions at schools and healthcare settings and universal screening for diversion and mental health conditions may combat this public health concern.
