posted on 18.11.2019, 05:42 by LAURA JANE ANDERSON
This thesis used a dual-focus approach of combining psychological and toxicological analysis in order to understand the interaction between mental health and alcohol and other drug use. The findings of this research demonstrated a need to provide in depth psycho-education and early intervention to these high-risk groups in the community in order to prevent future harm.
