Data have been generated by researchers from many disciplines, each looking at a particular aspect of an issue. This book summarizes the major research findings in the area of drugs and family/peer influence which have been published during the last 15 years. The volume is organized to provide the reader with the purpose, methodology, findings, and conclusions of previous studies done in this area.
