Abstract

Examined adolescent perceptions of family system characteristics and parental behaviors as predictors of adolescent substance use. Self-report questionnaire data were collected from 489 high school students (aged 13-20 yrs). Adolescent substance use was measured using a 9-item scale developed for the study. Measures of bonding, flexibility, communication, parents' substance use and other behaviors, and perception of parental support were included. Bivariate correlations and multiple regression analysis indicated that the frequency of parental substance use was positively related to adolescent substance use, while family bonding and parental support were negatively related.
