Study hypothesized that adolescent substance abusers are more likely to experience leisure as boredom than are nonabusers. A survey of 39 abusers and 81 controls measured differences in boredom in leisure. Results supported the hypothesis, suggesting an experiential approach in treating this population rather than traditional cognitive and more passive approaches. (SM)
