Medical Approaches to the Prevention of Drug Dependence

  • P. Kielholz
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 20)


In any form of disease it is possible to deduce the appropriate prophylactic measures from the aetiology of the condition. The genetic factors involved in drug dependence are always of a multifarious nature, originating in the individual’s personality structure, early childhood, social milieu, and ease of access to drugs. Drug dependence is therefore mainly based on the triad of personality, drug, and society.
