Abstract The purpose of this research is to investigate how family functioning and family risk and protection factors are associated with substance use during adolescence and emerging adulthood. A total of 368 youths (age 15-25 years) who lived in Greece enrolled in the study. Family functioning was measured by the Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scale (FACES-IV) and participants also provided reports of family structure, parental monitoring, parental concern over academic progress, family substance use and family conflict. Substance use was measured through frequency and quantity of alcohol use, frequency of cigarette use and experimentation with cannabis and tobacco use. Multivariate logistic regression analyses, adjusted for confounders, were used for analyzing the data. Results indicated that positive scales of family functioning (balanced cohesion, balanced flexibility, satisfaction, communication) were associated with reduced risk of cannabis experimentation in contrast to family disengagement. Family rigidity was linked with reduced risk of cannabis and cigarette experimentation. Constant parental monitoring was linked with reduced risk of frequent alcohol and cigarette use, as well as cigarette and cannabis experimentation. Constant family conflict was associated with larger quantity of alcohol drinks, while familial substance use was associated with high risk of cigarette experimentation. The findings of this research highlight the necessity of family-based prevention programs during the periods of adolescence and emerging adulthood in Greece.
