This is a survey research study which investigated gender and peer influence on substance abuse among undergraduates in Lagos State University, Ojo, Lagos, Nigeria. 513 undergraduates were purposively selected for the study. The researchers designed the instrument, Gender and Peer Influence on Substance Abuse Inventory (GAPISAI) used in collecting data from the respondents. The data collected were analysed using percentages, Pearson product moment correlation co-efficient formula and t-test statistical analysis. The three formulated hypotheses were accepted by the results of the finding. The researchers suggested that all fresh and stale students in the University should be exposed to Self Concept Assertiveness Training (SCAT) and Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Programme (SARP).
