Risks Associated with Alcohol and Drug Use

 All substance use poses some degree of health risk. The level of risk is dependent on the type of substance, frequency, and amount used; interactions with other medications/substances, and individual risk factors including family history, previous substance abuse history, and health conditions (e.g. depression, pregnancy, diabetes, heart disease).
