Socio-Economic Correlated of Durg and Alcohol abuse: A field study of Kuwiat Addicts

Auther : Humoud F. Al-Qashaan - Yaaqub Y. Al-Kenderi

The study examines the relationship between some demographic variables and drug-and alcohol abuse. It concentrates on the addicts point of view regarding factors that precipitated the use of drugs and alcohol and later the reasons for the abuse.

The sample consists of 260 individuals (only males) from three different residential areas. Their attitudes and behaviors prior to addiction were examined. Attitudes were assessed through the implementation of a sociocultrual questionnaire containing demographic variables. The resutls indicate that 90% of the sample used drugs or alcohol before the age of 24. A significant relationship between that status and some attitudes and behaviors of the addicted people is found to exist and most of the addicts came from lower classes.

The results indicate that younger generation need to be guided along the right path. Some recommendations are stated for this purpose.
