according to Broadly, the results show that when it comes to teen substance use, the same protective and risk factors identified in Iceland apply everywhere.
In 1992, 14-, 15- and 16-year-olds in every school in Iceland filled in a questionnaire with these kinds of questions.
Nationally, almost 25 per cent were smoking every day, over 40 per cent had got drunk in the past month.
These talks, and Tindar, attracted the attention of a young researcher at the University of Iceland, called Inga Dóra Sigfúsdóttir.
He became a consultant to the first residential drug treatment centre for adolescents in Iceland, in a town called Tindar.

Southwestern Vermont Medical Center awarded $220K grant to prevent substance abuse
SBIRT is a program of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment through the Vermont Department of Health.
In order to decrease the amount of substance dependent Vermonters, $220,000 will provide for SBIRT practitioners, two interventionists and both SBIRT and emergency department staff at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center.
An interventionist will meet with a patient who’s identified as at-risk, in the emergency department, to do a motivational and effective intervention, Robbins added.
“[The grant] is now becoming a valuable community and population health resource for lowering the risk of substance use,” said Susan Robbins, director of the SVMC emergency department.
It focuses on working with at-risk patients by conducting brief interventions to offset the use of drugs and alcohol.
