Abstract

Using a simultaneous mixed methods design, this article studies the relapse predictors of Filipino methamphetamine abusers. Results of the quantitative study, with 32 relapsed and 19 abstaining individuals, indicate that self-efficacy, negative affect, motivation, coping, and craving were found to predict relapse and functional social support did not. In-depth interviews with 11 relapse and 10 abstaining individuals supported the quantitative study. Although the results mirror existing literature, the issue of social support was given emphasis in the discussion. Implications for treatment, limitations, and recommendations for future study are also discussed.
