Reasons Adolescents Don't Use Drugs: Exploring a "Depth of Acceptance" Model.
Russac, R. J.; Powell, Richard S.
Journal of Drug Education, v27 n4 p349-61 1997
Examines adolescents' (N=5384) reasons for not using drugs. An "immunization" model was constructed which related different reasons to external, outcome, social, and personal orientations or attitudes. Factor analysis confirmed the model; implications for "fine-tuning" prevention messages to connect with the orientations that motivate adolescents are discussed. (EMK)
