Measuring the level of resilience among teenagers involved with drugs

Implications to drug prevention and rehabilitation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Resilience is an important concept with huge implications particularly in prevention and rehabilitation. Thus, the main objective of this study was to determine resilience levels among teenagers involved with drugs and further to propose the prevention and rehabilitation strategies to overcoming the drug problem. In total, 200 teenagers age between 13-21 years from three juvenile Henry Gurney School in Malaysia, took part in this exploratory cross-sectional survey research design. All of these respondents were positively identified involved with drugs. A set of questionnaires were administered to the respondents in group. Results of the study indicate that the majority of teenagers involved in the study had moderate levels of resiliency (75.5%). Findings suggest that teenagers who have been identified involved with drugs should be helped to maintain and strengthen their recovery process. An existing drugs prevention and rehabilitation module must include the principle and processes which strengthen the resiliency among teenagers who are involved with drugs.
