dc.description.abstract The focus of this report is on exploring and clarifying research in the areas of spirituality and substance abuse . In terms of their definitions , these constructs , spirituality and religiosity , have been the subject of debate among researchers . The measurement of spirituality /religiosity and substance abuse has been inconsistent from study to study . Conflicting results are reported in the research evaluating the relationship between spirituality /religiosity and substance abuse , and in intervention studies that have employed treatment methods such as meditation and prayer . However , studies comparing spiritual interventions have yet to be conducted . In this report I review and critique the literature and provide guidelines for future research .
