Harmful substance use (alcohol, tobacco, and/or prescription opioids) is common and twin studies suggest a substantial genetic role. Further, combined use of alcohol with tobacco and tobacco with opioids, commonly occurs suggesting that environmental and genetic risks for these behaviors overlap. However, identified genetic variation explains only a small proportion of the phenotypic variation for individual or combined substance use. Studies aiming to identify shared genetic pathways across sub...
