Research Study on Substance Use, Adverse Childhood Experiences, and Attachment Styles

Kaitlyn Komar, Saint Elizabeth University.

The specific research question is “Does drug of choice and attachment style affect the length of sobriety before relapse?” This study is to learn about if there is a specific drug and attachment style that is correlated with more frequent relapses and less sobriety time. This study is also intended to investigate how adverse childhood experiences affect attachment style in adulthood and result in drug use in adulthood. Understanding sobriety and relapse will be useful for this population to better predict and prevent relapse, understand which individuals may be more high-risk, and improve treatment interventions.
