Title: Nonconformist tendencies related to risky choices in female methamphetamine abstainers
Published: May 31, 2019
It is widely held that drug addiction is influenced by social influences, but the effect of social factors on safe or risky choices of abstaining addicts have been little studied. We found female methamphetamine users made more risky choices and demonstrated more nonconforming attitudes in a gambling task when exposed to the choices of their peers. This nonconformist tendency may help track and understand the addiction and decisions made by female methamphetamine abstainers.
