This exploratory descriptive study examined variables which will help social workers to better understand cocaine addicted mothers. The following factors were identified:
(a) Ego Strength
A forty-six (46) item self-administered questionnaire was given to the sample population of thirty females ranging in age from eighteen to forty (18-40). Fifteen (15) of the cocaine addicted mothers were in treatment at a local metropolitan hospital; fifteen (15) of the non-drug dependent mothers were attending a local metropolitan college.
The findings revealed that there is no significant difference in the ego strength, self-esteem, and self acceptance of cocaine addicted mothers and non-drug dependent mothers.
