Abstract

Excessive alcohol consumption is a serious public health and social problem, which affects not only the adult population but is a more and more widespread phenomenon among adolescents as well. In the background of adolescents' alcohol use there is a very complex system, in which the social and family effects, social motives particularly play an important role. The purpose of the present study was to obtain different social networks effects which may have an influence on adolescents' drinking habits. The study was performed in Mako and the villages in its area in Hungary in all of the schools in the spring of 2010. The sample represented an adolescent population of a small town and the villages in its area. Self-administered questionnaires were applied anonymously among students from grades 7 - 12. Of the 2,394 questionnaires sent out, 2,072 were returned. Besides descriptive statics multiple linear regression analysis was used to test these interrelationships. According to our results, there is slight but significant relationship between socio-economic status and the monthly prevalence of alcohol drinking; mothers' education status has a significant connection as a parental schooling variable. Peers' drinking patterns were revealed to be strong positive predictors, similar to peers' positive attitudes and social motives related to alcohol. In case of alcohol use - likewise many other addictive substances - there is a complex, multifactorial system in the background, which suggests a need for complex solutions and interventions. During the planning of a prevention or health promotion program it may be necessary to map the substance user status, the different social influences and motives and to assess the target population to be able to plan and perform targeted prevention programs that would provide a better approach to the problem in question.
