Opening Doors: Techniques For Talking With Southeast Asian Clients About Alcohol & Other Drug Issues
NCADI; Metropolitan Indochinese Children and Adolescent Services
National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information
P.O. Box 2345
Rockville, MD 20847-2345

Southeast Asian immigrants are at a high risk for developing problems with alcohol and other drugs due to post-traumatic stress, economic disadvantage, and family problems. In addition, alcohol has a long history of use in Southeast Asia as a medicine, so many Asians don't realize that excessive use can be harmful to health. Young people may use alcohol and other drugs as a way of fitting in with their new American peers. Shame, and the belief that problems should be kept within the family often keep this population from seeking help even if it has become clear that a family member does have an alcohol or drug problem. After giving extensive background information on alcohol and drug use among Southeast Asian-Americans, the video gives dramatizations of 4 different situations that a counselor might encounter.
