Abstract

The authors investigate the interaction of alcoholism, antisocial personality, and drug use in a criminal population on probation and parole. Men with antisocial personality had higher rates of alcoholissn and illicit drug use than men without. Both antisocial symptomatology and degree of illicit drug use added independently to the predictability of alcoholism. The investigative importance of the relationship between these three disorders is discussed.
