Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Youth is a relevant stage of social, personal and family changes, which can significantly condition the lifestyles of our young people, especially in terms of drug use or possible behavioural addictions. Moreover, these recent years of pandemic have had a great impact on the consumption patterns of different substances such as alcohol and cannabis, and the involvement of the pandemic in possible behavioural addictions has been less studied.

The aim is to create a Special Issue of the journal IJERPH in 2023, covering both general and specific aspects of drug use and behavioural addictions in youth people during and post pandemic time.

The issue is open to all researchers or research groups that analyze drug use and behavioural addictions, including papers related to methodological aspects of validation of general or specific questionnaires of these aspects, systematic reviews or original articles that evaluate these problems in the youth population.
