D?ANDREA, Gustavo; VENTURA, Carla Aparecida Arena  and  COSTA JUNIOR, Moacyr Lobo da. Social use of alcohol among adolescent offenders: a fundamental approach toward human needs. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2014, vol.48, n.1, pp.133-140. ISSN 0080-6234.

This study examined some basic health care approaches toward human needs, with a particular focus on nursing. We aimed to incorporate these approaches into the discussion of the mental health of adolescent offenders who consume alcohol. We discuss specific needs of the delinquent group, critique policies that prioritize coercion of adolescent offenders, and the role that nurses could play in the sphere of juvenile delinquency.
