Interrelationship of substance use and psychological distress over the life course among a cohort of urban African Americans
Drug and Alcohol Dependence, 05/25/2012
Green KM et al. – Findings demonstrate the continuity of substance use and psychological distress over time; the contemporaneous relationships between psychological distress and substance use within time periods, and minimal cross–lagged relationships. Findings also show that adolescent substance use may set boys on a pathway of long–term psychological distress, thus adding to evidence of negative consequences of frequent use.
