Completed - I think you would benefit more on the outcome if this study if you dove deeper into specific causes like socioeconomic status, and specific questions like, “do you believe mental health issues in your family history has contributed to your substance abuse?” Just a thought best of Luck

And my opinion the main factors behind substance abuse of teens are:

1. Trauma
2. Environment / Upbringing and normalcy’s of family life (if parents drink every day.. increases chance of child becoming an alcoholic by x %)
3. Genetic makeup
4. Peer pressure / group of friends choices
5. Parental influence of positive nature

personally I don’t think wealth is correlated to increased substance abuse by adolescents. I think poor, middle class or rich the average amount of drug use in each group would be very similar.

thanks for your input that really helps me a lot! Definitely included some points that I hadn't thought of before so that will help with my assessment.

Stress and general dissatisfaction with relationships and life are a big influence with everyone I knew and myself during highschool.
