   Abstract = {<h4>Background</h4>Previous theory and research suggest
             links between substance use and externalizing behavior
             problems, but links between substance use and internalizing
             problems are less clear. The present study sought to
             understand concurrent links among diagnoses of substance use
             disorders, internalizing disorders, and behavior disorders
             at age 18 as well as developmental trajectories of illicit
             substance use prior to and after this point.<h4>Methods</h4>Using
             data from 585 participants in the Child Development Project,
             this study examined comorbidity among substance use,
             behavior, and internalizing disorders at age 18 and
             trajectories of growth in illicit substance use from age 12
             to age 22.<h4>Results</h4>In this community sample, meeting
             diagnostic criteria for comorbid internalizing disorders, a
             behavioral disorder (conduct disorder or oppositional
             defiant disorder) alone, or both internalizing and
             behavioral disorders predicted higher concurrent substance
             use disorders (abuse, dependence, or withdrawal). Meeting
             diagnostic criteria for an anxiety disorder alone or
             depression alone did not predict higher concurrent substance
             use diagnoses. Over time, youths with behavioral disorders
             at age 18 showed a pattern of increasing substance use
             across early adolescence and higher levels of substance use
             than those with no diagnosis at age 18. Substance use
             declines from late adolescence to early adulthood were
             observed for all groups.<h4>Conclusions</h4>Substance use
             disorders were more highly comorbid with behavior disorders
             than with internalizing disorders at age 18, and behavior
             disorder and comorbid behavior-internalizing disorders at
             age 18 were related to trajectories characterized by steep
             increases in illicit substance use during adolescence and
             high rates of illicit substance use over
