Title: Substance abuse 
Author: Cernozubov, Katarina
Date: 1970
Publisher: [Honolulu]
Abstract: The study dealt with the problem of addiction of youth in the State of Hawaii. The main focus of research was on two kinds of addiction--use of LSD and glue sniffing. The sample consisted of 120 randomly selected young people in their teens. A questionnaire and tests were administered in order to test two general hypotheses: 1) Personality characteristics will provide better discrimination between addicted and nonaddicted subjects than will biographical and demographic data. 2) Demographic and biographical data will provide better discriminations than will personality characteristics in distinguishing between different kinds of addiction. These hypotheses were generally approved by the findings. Specific characteristics (personality and bio-demographic) which distinguished the LSD group from the glue-sniffing group were found. Extensive data from field work were presented. The hypothesis and general theoretical framework was that of existential philosophy.
