Abstract

This study, compared the rate of self-reported alcohol and other drug use in a sample of 30 young adults with mild intellectual disability whose offending behaviour had resulted in involvement in the criminal justice system,with a matched comparison group of 30 non-offenders. Performance on an alcohol and other drug knowledge test was also compared. The results indicatedthat many individuals with mild intellectual disability regularly consumedalcohol and used illicit drugs. Furthermore, the data suggest a possible link between substance abuse and offending behaviour in this population. Individuals who had offended reported greater use of both legal and illicit drugs than their non-offending counterparts and many reported that they had been under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs at the time of committing the offence that had resulted in their current placement within the criminal justice system. Although deficits in knowledge were apparent in both groups, the offenders demonstrated greater overall knowledge about alcohol and other drugs.
