Substance Use in Older Adults

Hello everyone! This week Elle is joined with Chris Perlman and Eunice Indome, a Professor and a Masters Student from the University of Waterloo in Canada. Together they find out What’s the Crack with substance use among older adults!

So, who classifies as an older adult? What substances are being used by this population? Why is it called an ‘invisible epidemic? Why is this population so important to research? And is alcohol treatment tailored to age?
