Today there are different kinds of microscopes which are used for research in many different fields, from the genetic study of addiction to geology and forensic science. Experts at Morningside Recovery rehab and other institutions think the strong evidence for genetic predisposition will help researchers find the reason why some people become addicted which would increase recovery rates substantially.
