The factors influencing transitions between stages in the development of problem substance use and gambling are diverse and operate across three levels of analysis: the social, economic, and political environment, the individual, and the cellular and molecular. This chapter summarizes and interprets key findings for single determinants and presents a range of multifactorial models that seek to develop a more complex understanding of the relationship between those determinants. The working version of an integrative heuristic model is presented arising from the work of ALICE RAP. The methodological strengths and challenges encountered in this project are also discussed. Finally, the work is situated with the context of the broader ALICE RAP project.
