Drug Addicts: Trajectories, Socio-psichological Profiles, Family Patterns and Mental Processes

Why do the majority of young people, in contemporary society, experiment with drugs and never become addicted? Why do others experiment with those substances, and become frequent consumers of certain drugs? Why do yet others move from experimentation to drug-addiction, leading sometimes to ways of life based on delinquency? One of the central purposes of this research is to answer these core questions.
