Adolescent substance abuse is the nation's #1 public health problem. It originates out of a developmental era where experimentation with the world is increasingly taking place, and where major changes in physical self and social relationships are taking place. These changes cannot be understood by any one discipline nor can they be described by focusing only on the behavioral and social problems of this age period, the characteristics of normal development, or the pharmacology and addictive potential of specific drugs. They require knowledge of the brain's systems of reward and control, genetics, psychopharmacology, personality, child development, psychopathology, family dynamics, peer group relationships, culture, social policy, and more. Drawing on the expertise of the leading researchers in this field, this Handbook provides the most comprehensive summarization of current knowledge about adolescent substance abuse. The Handbook is organized into eight sections covering the literature on the developmental context of this life period, the epidemiology of adolescent use and abuse, similarities and differences in use, addictive potential, and consequences of use for different drugs; etiology and course as characterized at different levels of mechanistic analysis ranging from the genetic and neural to the behavioural and social. Two sections cover the clinical ramifications of abuse, and prevention and intervention strategies to most effectively deal with these problems. The Handbook's last section addresses the role of social policy in framing the problem, in addressing it, and explores its potential role in alleviating it.

Robert A. Zucker is a Professor in Psychiatry and Psychology at the University of Michigan, Director Emeritus of the UM Addiction Research Center and of the Department of Psychiatry Substance Abuse Section. His major career focus has been the lifespan etiology and course of alcohol and other drug involvement, and the development of screening, early identification, and early intervention programming for high-risk populations. He is internationally recognized as one of the major contributors to the understanding of alcoholism as a developmental disorder whose roots can be tracked back to early childhood. He has been involved in the translational ramifications of this work as a member of a number of NIH action committees to identify and screen for early substance abuse, and as the director of NIH supported programs to develop substance abuse research infrastructure in Eastern Europe. He is the recipient of over 70 NIH grants, is a Steering Committee member and Site PI for NIH's major national; prospective study of Adolescent Brain Neurocognitive Development (ABCD), is author of more than 300 publications, editor/author of 11 books, and is a recipient of the Research Society on Alcoholism's Distinguished Researcher Award. He is also past-President of the Society on Addiction Psychology. Sandra A. Brown is Vice Chancellor for Research and a Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego. She is internationally recognized for her developmentally focused alcohol and drug intervention research. Her primary research focuses on the impact of alcohol and other drugs on human development and clinical course for substance abuse factors influencing transitions out of alcohol and drug problems. Her research yielded pioneering information on adolescent addiction, relapse among youth, and long-term outcomes of youth who have experienced alcohol and drug problems. She is the past President of Division 50 (Addictions) of the American Psychological; Association, is on the executive board of numerous scientific organizations, and has more than 35 grants and 350 publications. She is involved in addiction prevention and intervention at the regional, state, and national levels and helped lead the National Institute of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse's (NIAAA) effort to establish national screening and early intervention guidelines for youth. She currently directs the National Consortium on Alcohol and Neurodevelopment in Adolescence (NCANDA), and codirects the Coordinating Center for NIH's 10 year study of the development of the adolescent brain (the Adolescent Brain Neurocognitive Development (ABCD) study).
