This study examines the contextual / situational dynamics of the drug use and delinquent behavior of female residents of the Kalamazoo County Juvenile Home and the Kalamazoo Probation Enhancement Program. Theoretical frameworks that place female delinquency in the context of individual risk factors, the effects of social context and larger social environmental considerations are used to examine the female residents' pathways to substance abuse and delinquency.
