Patricia K asks:
I am not familiar with the term poly substance use. After reading the case history I am guessing that it has to do with the use of multiple drugs but I would like some clarification.
Hi Patricia! You are right on point. Polysubstance means that the child is using no less than three substances (caffeine and nicotine excluded), for example, marijuana, alcohol and opiates .
Do you have any thoughts to add?
