Social-emotional characteristics and drug use patterns of adolescents who reported having no friends (i.e. isolates) were compared to those of adolescents in drug using and non-drug using peer groups. Adolescents with no drug using peers reported lowest drug use and those with drug-using peers had highest drug use, with isolated adolescents falling in between. (BF)
