Gender Differences in Late Adolescents Substance-Abuse and Family Role Development
Child and Family Studies
This research explored gender differences in the etiology and consequences of alcohol abuse among older adolescents. No significant differences were found in the etiology of alcohol abuse; however, consequences were different for young men and women in three areas. Men were more likely to have neglected duties acid women were more likely to have experienced blackouts and to have lost friends as a result of their drinking.
