Substance Abuse Clinical Research
Use and abuse of substances such as cigarettes, alcohol, and drugs may begin in childhood, the teen years or during adult life. Risk factors include genes, poor choice of associations, access to drugs, loneliness, and overwork. Abused substances alter a person’s judgment, perception, attention, and physical control, and create dependence and a whole other constellation of problems.
