  1. Medical consequences of substance abuse.

    Article - En anglais

    Differentiating the complications of parenteral drug use, HIV disease, and the toxicity of drugs such as alcohol and cocaine may be a difficult matter for clinicians.

    The risk for existing comorbidity is high.

    This article reviews these complications as they relate to substance abuse and asserts that integration of primary prevention plans with the reinforcement of drug abstinence should be a priority for individual patients as well as for public health planning.
