This study was performed at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and led the researchers to conlcude that  dating violence prevention and intervention programs, which often ignore alcohol use, should be targeting reduction of use. 


There were two studies of male and female college students who were at least 18 years old, had been a relationship for at least a month that involved two days a week of face-to-face contact, and had consumed alcohol in the previous month.  According to this news release on Psych Central, "The study of men found that odds of psychological, physical and sexual violence increased with subsequent use of alcohol. Specifically, odds of physical and sexual abuse increased on days where any alcohol was consumed and with each drink consumed. Odds of psychological abuse increased only on days when five or more drinks were consumed." 


Marijuana use was unrelated to violence between intimate partners

but there were some interesting gender differences with respect to the incidence of psychological aggression under the influence of marijuana. The study of college women found that alcohol use increased the odds of physical and psychological aggression but that marijuana use by women also increased the odds of psychological aggression.
