Journal of Alcohol and Drug Education, v44 n1 p34-46 Fall 1998
Measures religious proscriptiveness through three types of faith groups-proscriptive, moderate, and nonproscriptive. Reports that a significant difference of religious proscriptiveness was found on alcohol use of high school students. Unlike previous findings, the impact of religious proscriptiveness was not significant on binge drinking. Using stepwise multiple regression, peer pressure was determined as the strongest predictor of adolescent alcohol use. (Author/JDM)
