Does drug mis-instrumentalization lead to drug abuse?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 34 (6):316-317 (2011)

Abstract
Understanding the perceived benefits of using drugs to achieve specific mental states will provide novel insights into the reasons individuals seek to use drugs. However, the precision of attempts to instrumentalize drugs is unclear both across drugs and individuals. Moreover, mis-instrumentalization, defined as discrepancies between such endpoints, may have relevance to understanding the relation among use, abuse, and addiction
