528-538Bill Maier, a clinical psychologist at Focus on the Family (, and host of Weekend Magazine, on today's report that almost half of college-aged adults have a psychiatric disorder.  He issued this statement today,
"As a society I believe we need to ask the hard question—what is causing such a high incidence of personality disorders and drug and alcohol abuse among our young people?  Although the researchers rightly point to our high-pressure, 'get ahead  at  all costs' culture, we need to acknowledge that family breakdown, dysfunctional parenting, social isolation and spiritual emptiness are likely major contributing factors as well."
The study was released Monday in Archives of General Psychiatry, and was based on 5,092 face-to-face interviews of adults ages 19-25 in 2001 and 2002.
Conducted by Mark Olfson of both Columbia and the New York State Psychiatric Institute.  It was funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and the New York Psychiatric Institute.
20% have a personality disorder that interferes with everyday life.
50% have either or both a personality disorder or a substance abuse problem.
Less than 25% get any treatment.
33% suffer from substance abuse (drug and alcohol abuse).  Among these, 20% are problem drinkers, and 7% have drug problems.
12% have anxiety disorders.  Among these, 8% had obsessive compulsive personality disorder (an extreme preoccupation with details, rules, orderliness, and perfectionism), and 2% have OCD (which features repetitive actions such as hand-washing to avoid germs).

• "The United States should be less concerned that terrorists will become biologists and far more concerned that biologists will become terrorists," the report states.
• "The biological threat is greater than the nuclear; the acquisition of deadly pathogens, and their weaponization and dissemination in aerosol form, would entail fewer technical hurdles than the theft or production of weapons-grade uranium or plutonium and its assembly into an improvised nuclear device," states the report.
• Study chairman Graham said anthrax remains the most likely biological weapon. However, he told the AP that contagious diseases — like the flu strain that killed 40 million at the beginning of the 20th century — are looming threats. That virus has been recreated in scientific labs, and there remains no inoculation to protect against it if is stolen and released.
• Al Qaeda remains the only terrorist group judged to be actively intent on conducting a nuclear attack against the United States, the report notes. It is not yet capable of building such a weapon and has yet to obtain one. But that could change if a nuclear weapons engineer or scientist were recruited to Al Qaeda's cause, the report warns.  The report says the potential nexus of terrorism, nuclear and biological weapons is especially acute in Pakistan.  "Were one to map terrorism and weapons of mass destruction today, all roads would intersect in Pakistan," the report states.
