Drugs most often associated with substance abuse include alcohol,
substituted amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines (particularly
alprazolam, temazepam, diazepam and clonazepam), cocaine, methaqualone
and opioids. Use of these drugs may lead to criminal penalty in addition
to possible physical, social, and psychological harm.
There are many cases in which criminal or anti-social behavior occur
when the person is under the influence of a drug. Long term personality
changes in individuals may occur as well. Substance abuse is prevalent
with an estimated 120 million users of hard drugs such as cocaine,
heroin and other synthetic drugs.
