Substance abuse can be described as a pattern of harmful use of any substance. It generally involves overindulgence in or dependence on an addictive substance like alcohol or drugs. Many imaging methods have been used to better understand the cause of addiction to these substances and to investigate the deviation from normal circumstances due to this abuse. We have tried to provide a framework for a systematic review of MR studies that have tried to explore structural as well as functional changes caused due to substance abuse.
