Review: General information about alcohol, drug and substance use, misuse and abuse targeted to senior adults. Good direction to encourage consumers to ask professionals to clarify what potential impacts or complications might arise when aiming for the medical use of over-the-counter, prescription and/or herbal preparations. Resources for professionals and carers offered via related links to a broad-based directory of health issues affecting older adults.
