Substance abuse could disqualify you from being eligible for an FAA medical certificate. Except for small "light sport" aircraft you would need a medical certificate in order to fly solo. You might want to search (aviation medicine) or (faa medical certificate). If you are denied a certificate you might render yourself ineligible to fly "light sport" aircraft.
