Abstract

Most previous research has assumed that adolescent alcohol use and problemuse represent a continuum and are influenced by the same psychosocial factors, with problem use representing more severe psychosocial impairment. Thecurrent study evaluated this assumption by identifying the correlates of adolescent alcohol use and those of problem use. Using a community sample ofadolescent children of alcoholics (COAs) and a demographically matched comparison group (non-COAs), a typology of adolescent alcohol use was created,and alcohol use groups were compared on variables chosen from nine psychosocial domains. The correlates of problem alcohol use were different from those of moderate use. Problem use was associated with fundamental family disruptions and poor psychological functioning. In contrast, the determinants of moderate alcohol use reflected unconventionality and socialization specific to alcohol. Few psychosocial variables distinguished abstainers from light drinkers. Intervention and methodological implications of these findings are discussed.
