Any empirical papers or systematic reviews concerned with the epidemiology, etiology, prevention or treatment of drug abuse and addiction will be considered. Papers focused on alcohol or tobacco use alone should be submitted to the respective special issues; however, papers may consider the epidemiology, etiology, prevention or treatment of multiple substance abuse or addiction, including alcohol and tobacco, as long as they also include other drugs. Authors are encouraged to consider the individual or intrapersonal, as well as the environmental (including social and cultural/societal) aspects of the epidemiology, etiology, prevention or treatment of drug abuse and addiction.
