Abstract

Among the different causes and/or conditions facilitating substance use, socio-relational experiences occupy a relevant role. Aggressive and/or cooperative interactions among peers, with the consequent identification with hostile and/or pro-social roles, can constitute a specific risk source and/or protection of deviant development, in particular of the drug addiction. In bullying, besides the dyade bully-victim, various types of roles have been focused: Some supporting the bully (hostile roles), others supporting the victim (pro-social roles) (Salmivalli et al., 1996; Belacchi 2008). This research investigated the relation between substance use and previous roles in bullying at school. 94 participants (47 drug addicts and 47 control group), average age of 27 years old, have been administered with a self-report questionnaire regarding the roles taken in bullying as well as an anamnestic questionnaire. The results evidenced statistically significant differences between drug addicts and control group in hostile roles, with higher scores in the first group. In aggressive roles an interaction between group and gender emerged: Addict females obtained significantly higher scores in respect to control group, on the contrary of addict males. This result underlines that, taking aggressive roles can represent a specific risk factor for females.
