The prevalence of substance abuse among pregnant women in Utah.
To determine the rate of substance use among Utah's pregnant women, who are primarily white and middle class, for comparison to rates reported in studies of inner-city populations.
Urine specimens and demographic data were obtained anonymously from women who delivered infants at ten hospitals in urban and suburban Utah.
Urine samples were screened by enzyme immunoassay for amphetamines, marijuana, cocaine, methadone, opiates, benzodiazepines, and ethanol.
Among 792 women screened, the mean age was 26.2 years, 86.1% were white, 62.9% were multigravidas, and 66.3% had private insurance.
