Presents results of a study of the graphic indicators in drawings by patients with substance abuse disorders. The Bird's Nest Drawing, an assessment task previously devised to elicit pictorial representations of attachment security, was used to examine attachment patterns of volunteers. Results showed that those with substance abuse diagnoses were more likely to have insecure attachment and used less color. (Contains 49 references, 3 tables, and 10 figures.) (GCP)
