    Special Issue on Substance Abuse and Related Disorders

     

    Substance Abuse refers to the harmful or hazardous use of psychoactive substances, including alcohol and illicit drugs. Psychoactive substance use can lead to dependence syndrome - a cluster of behavioral, cognitive, and physiological phenomena that develop after repeated substance use and that typically include a strong desire to take the drug, difficulties in controlling its use, persisting in its use despite harmful consequences, a higher priority given to drug use than to other activities and obligations, increased tolerance, and sometimes a physical withdrawal state.

     

    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring substance abuse and related disorders. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

     

    • Alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs
    • Underage drinking
    • Trauma and violence
    • Prescription drug misuse and abuse
    • Mental and substance use disorders
    • Substance abuse prevention
    • School and campus health
    • Behavioral Health treatments
    • Recovery and recovery support

     

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal at Paper Submission System.

     

    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue – Substance Abuse and Related Disorders” should be selected during your submission.
