CCSA report on early causes of substance abuse

From the Foreword: “Many factors are at play to make one person more likely to abuse substances than another, including genetics, brain abnormalities, behaviour, personality styles and the environment at home and at school. No one set of experiences or factors directly results in later-life substance abuse because every individual and his or her experiences are unique. A dynamic interplay among genetic, biological, social and environmental experiences and vulnerabilities begins the moment a child is born.”
