Surveyed 40 adolescent inpatients concerning peer influences, substance abuse, and treatment. Found that misconduct, including substance abuse, was predicted best by perceived peer pressure toward misconduct, low opinions of value of treatment by disposition to conform to antisocial peers, and sense of stigma associated with being treated by perceived peer pressure toward conformity.
