  1. The phenomenon of abusable psychotropic use among North American youth.

    Article - En anglais

    Abusable psychotropic use can, and does, affect all North American youth, either directly or indirectly, regardless of age, gender, culture, ethnic background, education, race, or socioeconomic status.

    Over the last decade, the morbidity and mortality associated with abusable psychotropic use among youth have become staggering.

    A current overview of the phenomenon of abusable psychotropic use among youth in North America, including the use of alcohol, cannabis, cocaine, LSD, nicotine, and polyabusable psychotropic use, is presented with attention to the expanding role of clinical pharmacologists in relation to both prevention and treatment.
