Substance use among adolescents with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
When rheumatologists see adolescents, particularly in situations where methotrexate may be prescribed, a clinical setting conductive to confidentially, physician comfort in asking about sensitive topics such as substance abuse, and referral relationships with skilled adolescent health and substance abuse counseling providers are essential.

Priorities in adolescent health care: the teenager's viewpoint.
TLDR

Health counseling for adolescents: what they want, what they get, and who gives it.
