CASA* Report Finds Teens Who Have Infrequent Family Dinners Likelier to Drink, Smoke, Use Marijuana
Date:9/22/2009

Teens Likelier to Be Able to Get Prescription Drugs, Marijuana, Within an Hour When Family Dinners Infrequent

NEW YORK, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Compared to teens who have frequent family dinners (five or more per week), those who have infrequent family dinners (fewer than three per week) are twice as likely to use tobacco or marijuana; more than one and a half times likelier to use alcohol; and twice as likely to expect to try drugs in the future, according to The Importance of Family Dinners V, a new report by The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University.

The CASA report also found that compared to teens who have frequent family dinners, those who have infrequent family dinners are more than twice as likely to be able to get marijuana in an hour and one and a half times likelier to be able to get prescription drugs to get high within an hour.

The report reveals that compared to teens who have frequent family dinners without distractions at the table (talking or texting on a cell phone, using a Blackberry, laptop or Game Boy), those who have infrequent family dinners and say there are distractions at the table are three times likelier to use marijuana and tobacco, and two and a half times likelier to use alcohol.

The report also found that compared to teens who have five to seven family dinners per week, those who have fewer than three family dinners per week are:

  • Twice as likely to have friends who use marijuana and Ecstasy;
  • More than one and a half times likelier to have friends who drink, abuse prescription drugs, and use Meth; and
  • Almost one and a half times likelier to have friends who use illegal drugs like cocaine, acid and heroin.
