Addiction and alcohol abuse are pervasive diseases with important medical consequences, including in terms of public health. The mortality and morbidity associated with drug use are very high, and their impact on society is enormous, both in terms of quality of life and economic costs. The cause and consequences of addiction and alcohol abuse are multifaceted, complex, and diverse and often transcend many aspects of personal, social, and societal platforms. Therefore, an effective, socially mobilizing, and multiplatform approach is urgently required if the burdens associated with drug use are to be addressed.
This Special Issue aims to provide an overview of the latest research on the cause, consequences and treatment, control/policies of addiction and alcohol abuse, and the economic, legislative, health, and medical impact of addiction and alcohol abuse.
