Summary

In his powerful new Seventh Edition of DRUG USE AND ABUSE: A COMPREHENSIVE INTRODUCTION, Dr. Howard Abadinsky draws from the latest available data as he explores all aspects of the drug and alcohol abuse issue. The book?s thorough coverage includes the history of drugs, the impact on society, the pharmacological impact of drugs on the body, policy implications, the criminal justice system response, drug business, drug law enforcement, theories of use, and -- of course -- the effects, treatment, and prevention of abuse. Reports on the latest data on drug concerns provide further insight into alcohol and explore the abuse of additional substances such as ?club drugs?, inhalants, herbal stimulants, and designer drugs. The major drugs are arranged into depressants, stimulants, hallucinogens, and cannabis.
