abstract

  • The broad question of how to integrate mainstream and subcultural explanations of drug use and other problem behaviors is addressed. An integrated social control model was examined with inner-city Puerto Rican youth. The model did apply to drug use and delinquency. Adherence to traditional Hispanic culture provides some protection against dysfunctional behavior.
