Intravenous drug abuse in young men : risk factors assessed in a longitudinal perspective.
The role of family background as well as behavioural and psychological factors as risk factors for intravenous drug abuse was analysed in a longitudinal study of 8168 Swedish men conscripted for military service in 1969-70.
Information about risk factors was obtained from a survey of all Swedish conscripts.
Records on intravenous drug abuse, during a follow up ending in 1986, were obtained from a survey of intravenous drug abusers among persons brought to the Central police arrest in Stockholm.
Strong predictors of intravenous drug abuse were contact with the police or juvenile authorities (RR=22.3 95% CI 15.1-33.0), high alcohol consumption (RR=9.2 95% CI 6.7-12.7).
