Abstract [en]

Analyses have shown that SAT can be a useful theoretical framework for explaining substance use. The aim of this paper is to study the key concepts of the theory - substance use propensity and substancegenic exposure - in relation to gender, ethnic background and religious beliefs. Using data from the Peterborough Adolescent and Young Adult Development Study (PADS+) (n=716) this paper will demonstrate that differences in alcohol use by gender, ethnicity and religion can be explained by differences in substance use propensity and substancegenic exposure. Regardless of personal characteristics, the highest share of people who had felt drunk was observed among those with a medium or high propensity who had also been exposed to a substancegenic setting. Furthermore, alcohol use was found to be more common in situations with substancegenic characteristics (particularly rules of conduct) independent of the person’s gender, ethnicity or religion, in line with SAT.
