The Carlat Child Psychiatry Report, Volume 2, Number 6, October 2011
Editor-in-Chief, Caroline Fisher, PhD, MD
Prescription drug abuse is a growing problem among adults and adolescents, and we all know that painkillers, benzodiazepines, and amphetamines can be bought on the street by people who don’t need them for medical reasons. However, not a lot of research has been done on misuse of prescription drugs by kids with legitimate prescriptions.
