Communication in Relationships and Adolescent Substance Use: The Influence of Parents and Friends.
Kafka, Randy R.; London, Perry
Adolescence, v26 n103 p587-98 Fall 1991
Questionnaire and interview data from 37 high school students suggest that presence of at least one parental figure with whom adolescents could talk openly was associated with lower levels of all substance use (cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana, other drugs). Found no evidence that openness with close friend or perceived pressure from friends was related to substance use. (Author/NB)
