Here is a good article on anabolic steroids:ecreational drugs.

Psychiatric Complications of Anabolic
Steroiod Abuse, Ryan C. W. Hall, M.D.,
Richard C. W. Hall, M.D., and Marcia
J. Chapman


"Current data suggest that AAS abuse can increase aggression and cause rage, delirium, depression, mania, psychosis, and withdrawal symptoms. Psychiatric symptoms are seen at greater frequency with increasing doses of AAS. After discontinuation of AAS use, most psychiatric sequelae resolve within 8 weeks. Animal data suggest that taking anabolic steroids alters multiple neurochemical pathways. Use of AAS can lead to criminal behavior, such as drug abuse, as well as to assault and homicide that can be random and senseless."
