Samuels, Donald J.; Samuels, Muriel
Journal of Drug Education, 4, 4, 421-436, W 74
A study was done to determine if low self-concept is a common denominator as a causative factor of drug abuse among adolescents. The results showed that 75.5 percent of the subjects considered low self-concept to be one cause of their turning to drugs and 91.9 percent felt that boredom and curiosity was another. (Author)
