This book is a study of the dynamics of parental divorce impact on adolescent psychosocial behavior and effects of trending youth drug culture in Ghana in relation to education, crime, work and social policy formulation on the nexus of illicit drugs and family relation. Particularly, it identifies the proximate psychological and social factors that predispose adolescents of divorce families to drug use in relation to predictor variables such as internalizing and externalizing problem behaviors, adolescent gender and peer use association. The text includes a critical review of the extant literature on marital divorce and youth substance use. Anyone interested in having some knowledge of the effects of marital divorce on adolescent drug use will find reading this book rewarding. But the author’s ultimate point is that parental divorce is not a panacea for dealing with the problems in marriage, as it is associated with negative psycho-emotional challenges which affect the well-being of children who may be only passive members of the divorce process.
