Synopsis: This study examines patterns of substance use among youth served in systems of care, and how these patterns relate to diagnosis and other youth characteristics using latent class analysis. Results indicated a four-class solution with the four groups differing in their probabilities of reporting the use of 10 different substances. Membership in these classes varied as a function of demographic and clinical characteristics of youth and families. These differences have implications for prevention and treatment.
