    (Irish Medical Organization, 1980) ; ;

This paper is the first in a series of three which addresses itself to the problem. These three papers are based on a study of a cohort of Irish drug abusers. This, the first paper in the series, focuses on the social background of the subjects. The second paper will deal with their psychological characteristics.

    Irish drug abusers III: A psychosocial typology
    (Irish Medical Organization, 1981) ; ;
    This is the final article in a series based on a study of a cohort of Irish drug abusers. Previous papers dealt with the overall social (Carr et al., 1980) and psychological (Carr et al., 1981) characteristics of the cohort. While certain general trends were identified, perhaps the most striking feature of the data was the variability that exists between subjects. In the present paper this variability will be explored and a psycho-social typology of drug abusers presented.
