The paper should be 17 pages & include 20 scholarly sources, written in APA style.

The title of the thesis is The Correlation Between Genetics and the Predisposition to Substance Abuse, thus the paper should present research that supports this concept.

The paper should also be accompanied by in a Power Point presentation that explains the various sections of the paper. The Power Point should be exactly ten slides in length and accurately describe the content of the paper.
