Abstract

Eighty-nine substance abusers in an urban treatment facility completed the self-report version of the Ego Function Assessment as well as the Addiction Severity Index. Statistical analyses delineate ego functions that relate to specific disruptions in the social and psychological adaptation of the substance abuser. Distinct profiles of ego functions are highlighted based on patterns of drug abuse and types of treatment referrals, as well as patterns of intravenous drug injection. Education levels are shown to correlate with ego function strengths. Results are interpreted from the social perspective of drug abuse.
