Studies suggest that motivational structure and resilience play important roles in substance use. We studied the relationship among motivational structure, resilience, and substance use. Participants were university students (N = 120; 75% female, mean age = 21.5), who completed a demographic information sheet, Personal Concerns Inventory (PCI; to measure motivational structure), and Connor and Davidson's Resiliency Scale. The results showed that resilience and adaptive motivational structure were inverse predictors of substance abuse. The results of a mediational analysis showed that motivational structure was a full mediator of the relationship between resilience and substance use. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
