Substance abuse is the use of a drug or other substance for a non-medical use, with the aim of producing some type of 'mind-altering' effect in the user. This includes both the use of illegally produced substances, and the abuse of legal drugs, in a use for which the substance was not intended. As drug experts, pharmacists can use their knowledge of problems linked to misuse of prescription drugs to better understand comparable problems associated with other legal and illegal drugs.
