Role of Family Cohesion as Moderator between Job Stress and Drug Abuse among Employees of Business Process Outsourcing / Information Technology Sector

Dr. Om Prakash Chowdhury [2]


Abstract: The goal of the study is to evaluate how families are functioning in terms of cohesion and emotional ties as a moderating variable between job stress and drug abuse. The study used the "Occupational Stress Index" developed by Srivastava and Singh and Olson's Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scale (FACES IV) to compare the stress level and family cohesion of 200 drug abusing Employees and 200 Normal/Non drug abusing Employees. In the Indian context, the aforementioned tests were deemed to be quite reliable and genuine. The findings also demonstrated that stress levels and family dynamics have a significant impact on substance misuse. Adults from households with substance abuse and alcoholism are more prone to higher levels of stress and anxiety, lower levels of self - differentiation, and dysfunctional behaviour. The above tests were reported as highly reliable and valid in Indian context. The results also showed that substance abuse is highly influenced by level of stress and family cohesion. Implications for practice, limitations of the studies with suggestions for future research are suggested.
