Abstract: The aims of this study were to establish the prevalence of psychotropic drug use and to measure the associations between a high level of job strain and an imbalanced extrinsic efforts-rewards ratio with the use of psychotropic drugs among Quebec’s correctional officers (CO’s). Another aim was to examine if interpersonal violence was associated with psychotropic drug use. Finally, we have tested if interpersonal violence at work was an intermediate factor in the causal pathway between psychosocial risk factors at work and psychotropic drug use. The prevalence of psychotropic drug use was 14.7 %. Job strain was not associated with psychotropic drug use among Quebec’s CO’s in our study. An imbalanced extrinsic efforts-rewards ratio was statistically associated with psychotropic drug use. When considering interpersonal violence at work, intimidation was not associated with psychotropic drug use, but psychological harassment was. Finally, interpersonal violence at work was not an intermediate variable in the association between psychosocial risk factors at work and psychotropic drug use.
