As a result of exploratory factor analysis, 13 items were removed from the scale. The Cronbach Alpha internal consistency coefficient for 29 substances was calculated as 0.912. As a result of the factor analysis, it was determined that the draft scale exhibited a 4-factor structure and the total variance was calculated as 70.7%. Confirmatory factor analysis was performed to verify the validity of the scale and increase the evidence status. A scale of 26-item 4-factor structure, which validated the validity of the confirmatory factor analysis, has been formed. Reliability coefficient of the whole scale was calculated as 0.920
