This book provides ten manuscripts that describe different aspects of the relationship between drugs and crimes, always focusing on Brazilian reality. It shows that a partnership between specialized mental health professionals, lawyers and policy makers is urgent with respect to this subject in Brazil and other countries.

In addition, children molesters usually demonstrate higher alcohol problems than those offenders against adults. This chapter provides some findings related to adult sexual offenders in Brazil, with respect to the alcohol and drug problems and impulsiveness levels.
