Abstract

The study purpose was to examine social determinants associated with lifetime methamphetamine use among a national sample of adults. A secondary analysis of the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health was conducted. The results from the final multivariable logistic regression model revealed that adults at increased odds for lifetime methamphetamine use were those who were male, 26 years of age or older, participated in a government assistance program, reported their health as good/fair/poor, and used cigarettes, alcohol, and/or marijuana before the age of 21. Recommendations for future studies are included.
