Teens who drink are seven times more likely to have sexual intercourse than those who don't, reports this publication funded by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation. CASA analyzes the physiological and social connections between substance abuse and sexual activity, function, pleasure and violence, with particular attention to the consequences of such connections for teenagers, which include STDs and prostitution. CASA's recommendations for prevention are directed at parents, schools, social services, criminal justice institutions, health care professionals and insurance providers. 170 pages. $22.00.
