Peer Cluster Theory, Socialization Characteristics, and Adolescent Drug Use: A Path Analysis.
Oetting, E. R.; Beauvais, Fred
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v34 n2 p205-13 Apr 1987
Peer cluster theory suggests that the socialization factors that accompany adolescent development interact to produce peer clusters that encourage or discourage drug involvement. Correlations of socialization variables, strength of the family, family sanctions against drug use, religious identification, and school adjustment with drug use confirm their importance in drug use and their influence through peer drug associations.
