The present study was carried out on a sample group of 35 abusers and 35 non abusers and it was found that there is no significant difference in perceived social support of substance abusers with respect to abusers and non abusers. Although it was expected that the constructs of hardiness and perceived social support will differ significantly among abusers and non abusers, the same was not reflected in the results. The same may be due to the lesser sample size involved in the study as it is very difficult to detect effects in case of lower sample size studies. Nevertheless, the hardiness levels and perceived social support levels were assessed among the abusers and non abusers and the mean scores were found to be 1.52 and 4.82 respectively.
