Drugs most often associated with substance abuse include alcohol, substituted amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines (particularly alprazolam, temazepam, diazepam and clonazepam), cocaine, methaqualone and opioids. Use of these drugs may lead to criminal penalty in addition to possible physical, social, and psychological harm.
