To do this, go into Academic Search Complete (EBSCO) and try searching for drugs AND sports.  This will retrieve several thousand articles, but you can greatly limit this by selecting the subject "Substance abuse" from the subject headings on the left side of the screen.  You can further limit to full-text articles as well as year of publication.

If you are specifically looking for articles about the use of performance enhancing drugs in sports, try searching for performance enhancing drugs AND sports.  From there you can reduce the number of articles through the search limiters.

You can also use EBSCO's subject index (the 'Subject Terms' icon on the top left of the screen) to select subject headings that will help you to create a much more targeted search.  I found the subject heading DOPING in sports this way, which produced many relevant results that you can further limit by selecting narrower subject terms.
