Initial Examination of the Association Between Acceptance and Substance Use in Young Adults
Poster Session VII - Board: VII-
Twelve students responded to the Brief COPE Inventory and the Distress Tolerance Scale. A significant negative correlation (r = -.63) was found between the Substance Use Subscale of the Brief Cope Inventory and the Tolerance Subscale of the Distress Tolerance Scales. Results indicate that as tolerance of stressors in life declines it is accompanied by a propensity for utilizing substances.
