Deviant Drug Use in Adolescence: A Review of Psychosocial Correlates
Reviews research concerning the sociocultural and personality correlates of deviant adolescent use of alcohol, psychedelic drugs, and narcotics. A number of consistently replicated findings regarding both personality and sociocultural correlates of adolescent use were found. At the same time, lack of comprehensive, systematic and theory-bound research, gross lack of methodological rigor, and a lack of coordination of effort and integration of findings among the various areas of drug use research were noted. General requirements for the design of future research are discussed.
