Most importantly, appropriate strategies have been set to make sure that the study will not be significantly affected by these challenges. 3.14 Assumptions Since the participants will be provided with a consent form in order for them to decide whether or not to take part in the study, it is assumed that they will provide accurate information. 3.15 Conclusion The contribution of this study will be important as it will help scholars to acquire knowledge that exists on this topic. While analysing the views of older people on the use of drugs and substance abuse, the study will add knowledge to this area by linking the finding of various researchers to primary data in order to fill the existing knowledge gap. Moreover, the research will also adopt different theoretical frameworks to make sure that there is proper linkage between theory and practice. Finally, the research findings will help to establish what adults think about drug use and substance abuse.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
