Substance Use and Addiction Research: Methodology, Mechanisms, and Therapeutics
Alan David Kaye; Elyse M. Cornett
Over a quarter of a million Americans suffer from a drug use disorder and last year alone, over 100,000 died from drug overdoses.

Illicit drug use has been linked to detrimental psychosocial, educational, and mental health effects. There are several options for preventative initiatives, and successful implementation of these initiatives demonstrates the potential for lowering illegal drug usage and its consequences.
