Biosocial Correlates of Substance Abuse: Results from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

An impressive amount of research has emerged in recent years linking a wide range of biological and environmental factors to an array of antisocial phenotypes. One of the more consistent findings to flow out of this line of literature is that substance use and abuse is guided, in part, by biological factors. Still, the precise ways in which the environment and biology work together to produce substance abuse remains relatively unknown. The current study addresses this gap in the extant literature and examines the association between biosocial risk factors and substance abuse. To do so, we analyze data drawn from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health) to examine the genetic and environmental correlates to substance abuse. The results garnered from the multivariate models provide empirical evidence revealing that substance abuse is the result of biosocial factors. We address the ways in which a biosocial framework can guide and inform public policy.
