AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Conduct research to identify genetic factors that influence recreational use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs of abuse

Use standardized questions to examine both normal use of drugs, natural history of use and abuse (when started, how much, efforts to quit, used despite harmful consequences, etc). Most health conditions are influenced by drug use, so not collecting this sort of data compromises the entire project. Must distinguish recreational from compulsive use.
