Stages of Drug Use: A Social Control Perspective.
Free, Marvin D., Jr.
Youth and Society, v25 n2 p251-71 Dec 1993
Three models reflecting stages of substance abuse were tested using path analysis with subsamples of 626 to 850 subjects. Models indicate that measures of religiosity and religious conservatism help explain substance use. Results suggest that explanations of substance abuse can be enhanced through models using stage of drug involvement. (SLD)
