Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The purpose of this paper is to review literature regarding three different relationships which may exist between chemical dependency and antisocial/delinquent behavior. The first relationship involves the assumption that drug use causes delinquent or criminal behavior (Tuchfeld, Clayton, & Logan, 1982), versus the belief by some researchers (Lukoff & Kleinman, 1977) that juvenile delinquency is a cause or major factor in the development of substance abuse. The third relationship to be studied is whether drug use and delinquency are part of a single syndrome (Kandel, Simcha-Fagan, & Davies, 1986).
