    I need to identify and describe two prevention strategies

    I am trying to explain ways of determining whether loved ones have a problem with drugs using the DSM-IV-TR characteristics of substance abuse and dependence.

    I need to talk about the effectiveness of current treatment strategies in the United States

    Not sure how to explain polypharmacology

    Last thing I need in my paper is to address the possible treatment options and treatment difficulties for someone who is dependent on two substances.

    Thanks for the help!
