Comparing Students From Substance: Abusing and Dysfunctional Families - Implications for Counseling
This research compared family role dysfunction, college adjustment, chemical dependence, and family functioning among a sample of 245 college students from three groups: homes in which significant alcohol or other chemical abuse or dependence dysfunction existed; dysfunctional homes in which substance abuse was not a significant problem; and nonabusing, nondysfunctional homes. The results suggest that chemical abuse or dependence in families is associated with slowed adult role assimilation and increased risk for alcohol and other drug abuse among children.
