Comparison of Various Risk and Protective Factors for Substance Use/Abuse in a Court-Adjudicated Male Population.
Freidman, Alfred S.; Terras, Arlene
Journal of Child and Adolescent Substance Abuse, v8 n4 p17-36 1999
Assesses 350 delinquent court-adjudicated adolescent males for substance use/abuse. Analyses reveal social behavior/peer relationship variables to be more strongly related to the degree of substance use/abuse than were the family problem risk variables. Follow-up analysis reveals evidence that conforming/socially acceptable behavior acts as a protective factor against continuing or increasing the level of substance use. (Author/GCP)
