This study investigates the association between perceived racial discrimination (PRD) in school and polysubstance use among racial/ethnic minority adolescents using a nationally representative sample.
Controlling for demographic characteristics and psychosocial stressors, PRD in school was significantly associated with higher odds of polysubstance use among racial/ethnic minority adolescents.
Data were from the 2021 Adolescent Behaviors and Experiences Survey. The sample included 4,145 racial/ethnic minority adolescents.
