Emerging perspectives on substance misuse
Early versus late onset of alcoholism in the elderly. Improvements have focused on the development of better clinical interventions through research and increasing the skills and qualifications of treatment providers. In recent years, the impact of substance and alcohol abuse has been notable across several areas, including the following:. Adolescent abuse of prescription drugs has continued to rise over the past 5 years. It is believed that 2 factors have led to the increase in abuse. First, the availability of prescription drugs is increasing from many sources, including the family medicine cabinet, the Internet, and doctors.
Second, many adolescents believe that prescription drugs are safer to take than street drugs. Military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have placed a great strain on military personnel and their families. This strain can lead to family disintegration, mental health disorders, and even suicide. In addition, as the Federal Government begins to implement health reform legislation, it will focus attention on providing services for individuals with mental illness and substance use disorders, including new opportunities for access to and coverage of treatment and prevention services.
