Direct victimization, but also indirect exposure to violence, such as witnessing violence and knowing others who have been victimized, have been shown to increase risk of alcohol and drug use among adolescents and young adults (Goldstick et al., 2018;Grinshteyn, Xu, Manteuffel, & Ettner, 2018;Kobulsky, Minnes, Min, & Singer, 2016;Pinchevsky et al., 2013;Silverman, Raj, Mucci, & Hathaway, 2001;Zimmerman & Kushner, 2017) and vary according to the sex of the individuals (Exner-Cortens et al., 2013;Foshee et al., 2013;Roberts, Klein, & Fisher, 2003). ...
