According to Health Day News:

Teenage girls who develop post-traumatic stress disorder after being sexually assaulted aren't at increased risk for binge drinking, new research shows.

In the study, researchers analyzed data collected from 1,808 American girls, aged 12 to 17, who took part in a national telephone survey and were interviewed up to three times between 2005 and 2009.

This study just makes me wonder if they only asked about binge drinking or whether other types of drinking or drugging were discussed.

I wondered the same thing! I'd be curious to see if they asked about pills, pot, self injuries and other things.
