A Comparison of Personality Characteristics, Family Relationships, and Drug-Taking Behavior in Low and High Socioeconomic Status Adolescents Who Are Drug Abusers.
Siegel, Richard A.; Ehrlich, Annette
Adolescence, v24 n96 p925-36 Win 1989
Compared low and high socioeconomic status (SES) drug-abusing adolescents. Found that the two groups did not differ significantly with respect to self-esteem, quality of family relationships, impulse control, moral development, and drug-taking behavior. High SES adolescents were more depressed and anxious than were low SES adolescents. Findings suggest need for different types of treatment interventions. (Author/NB)
