Wake-Up Call: Drug Use or Drug Abuse?

This week on WNRN’s Sunday Morning Wake-Up Call with Rick Moore, Jeff Carr and Cara Marinucci, two certified substance abuse professionals, discuss the difference between drug use and drug abuse. As Carr puts it, substance abuse is “when it becomes pretty predictable that you’re gonna have a hangover.” Some of the topics included the symptoms of substance abuse, the physical and emotional effects of dependence, and what could be considered “acceptable use” of a drug. Also, how does alcoholism compare to dependence on a prescribed medication?
