The present paper is concerned with the interaction between drugs and social stimui in humans. Three general categories of interaction will be discussed: First, modulation of human social behavior by drugs; second, modulation of the behavioral and subjective effects of drugs by social stimuli; third, modulation of drug self-administration by social stimuli. Existing data will be reviewed which support each of these categories of interaction between drugs and social stimuli, and the implications of these interactions for the understanding of the behavioral pharmacology of drugs of abuse will be discussed.
