Violence and Crime and Substances | Effect of Substance Use Disorders on the Criminal
Process | Civil Matters and Family Law | Addiction and Administrative Law
The connections between violence, crime, and substances have
been recognized to some extent for most substances of abuse, but
these links continue to be elucidated. In this chapter, we discuss
violence toward others, but the various associations between substances
of abuse and suicide have been studied as well (for a review, see Mack and Lightdale 2005).
