Psychological Treatment For Substance Abuse See Treatment Treatment Types

PSYCHOMOTOR EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL AND DRUGS Alcohol and other drugs of abuse can alter normal behavior in a deleterious way. Epidemiological studies have shown that 50 percent or more of all single-vehicle traffic fatalities in the United States are associated with the use of ALCOHOL. The risk of a driver causing an accident increases progressively the more that BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENT (BAC) increases past 0.4 grams per liter (g/l). At BACs of 1.0 g/l, the risk is tenfold, and with BACs of 1.5 g/l, the risk is almost thirtyfold compared to nonalcohol conditions. The same phenomenon applies to accidents in which pedestrians are killed by drunk drivers.
