Substance Abuse and Emotion

CE Credits
Exam Items

There is a recurring debate over the causes of substance abuse that typically divides along two common assumptions: People either abuse drugs and alcohol out of sheer pleasure-seeking drives run amok or to escape or assuage aversive states of comorbid anxiety or depression. Substance Abuse and Emotion goes beyond this dichotomy in its exploration of recent, significant field observations, theory construction and rigorous testing, and laboratory research to advance working models for a new research paradigm on substance abuse and comorbidity.      

Learning Objectives
