This chapter focuses on the role of pharmacists in preventing drug misuse. Drug misuse includes both licit (prescribed and over-the-counter drugs) and illicit agents (illegal substances. Pharmacists encounter drug misuse on a daily basis, and pharmaceutical care of those misusing drugs can raise ethical, legal, and moral issues. There are two main areas for pharmacist involvement — health promotion and enhanced services involving substitute prescribing and needle exchange.
