Teen dating violence greatly differs from Adult interpersonal violence and as such should be viewed from a biopsychosocial lens. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between substance use and teen dating violence among Black/African American and Hispanic/Latino youth. A quantitative study was conducted with 24 youth attending an alternative charter high school in an urban city. The majority of the participants engaged in substance use with more than half using two or more substances within the past 30 days. Psychological teen dating violence was the most reported type of victimization and perpetration. Implications for social work and future research are discussed.
