dc.description.abstractThe current study is a quantitative, non-experimental research survey designed to explore the predictors of prescription opioid misuse (POM) among Hispanic female college students at a four-year public university in Southern Texas. A hierarchical linear regression and logistic regression were applied to examine the predictor variables of acculturation, pain, peer/friend POM, risky behaviors, and employment status to the dependent variable of POM as measured by an adapted version of the Drug Abuse Screening Test (DAST-10; Skinner 1982a). A logistic regression was conducted to examine the predictor variables of acculturation, pain, peer/friend POM, risky behaviors, and employment status to the dependent variable of lifetime POM. Findings revealed that acculturation, pain, peer/friend POM, risky behaviors, and employment status were not predictors of POM but were predictors of lifetime POM. From these findings, implications and future research are discussed.
