The study utilises a broad theory- and research- based framework providing evidence for statistically significant relationships between the outlined 'drug consumption' and sensation seeking (some example refs: Golding, 1987, Zuckerman et al., 1990; Sher et. al. 2000, etc).

You should use multivariate techniques (e. g. multiple linear regression analysis) as appropriate at some stage in your analysis as well as provide simple descriptive statistics and correlations where relevant.
