Abstract:

The overall purpose of this study was to identify some of the major correlates of permissive attitudes toward drug abuse D.A.. The General Biographical Information Questionnaire GBIQ, the General Drug Information Questionnaire GDIQ, and the Drug Opinion Survey DOS administered to 58 Navy enlisted candidates for the submarine service provided the source data for the study. Based upon the relationship of the Attitude Permissiveness Score derived from the DOS to selected items from the GBIQ and the GDIQ, major findings are outlined. Suggestions for planning an effective drug education program for the submarine service as well as consideration of the possibility of using attitude information of this kind to identify D.A.-prone submariner recruits were discussed.
