Medical News Today featured the ITM’s Emil Coccaro, MD, for his study linking an aggression disorder and greater risk of substance abuse. The study, which was recently published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, could open doors for more effective aggression treatment and substance abuse prevention.
“People don’t see this as a medical problem. They think of it as simply bad behavior they have developed over the course of their lives, but it isn’t. It has significant biology and neuroscience behind it.”
