Behavioral Approaches to Individual Differences in Substance Abuse

Drug-taking Behavior
  • Robert J. Barrett
Part of the Perspectives on Individual Differences book series (PIDF)


The plethora of theories that attempt to account for substance abuse include a bewildering assortment drawn from a broad cross-section of the life sciences. Recently, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (Lettieri, Sayers, and Pearson, 1980) reviewed 43 contemporary theories of drug abuse, representing nine different disciplines, including psychiatry, sociology, criminology, anthropology, biology, genetics, biomedical sciences, and psychology. Within psychology alone the theories were further subdivided into general, learning, social, and developmental psychology. Abbreviated titles such as life theme, family, neuropharmacological, bioanthropological, self-derrogation, incomplete mourning, existential, biological rhythm, ego/self, conditioning, and interactive framework theory were described as representative selections from contemporary perspectives. Although some of the theories involved concepts from more than one discipline, few of them would qualify as truly multidisciplinary in approach.
