Summary

Designed for the introduction to drugs and substance abuse course as taught in departments of health education, psychology, biology, sociology, and criminal justice, this text provides the latest information on drugs and their effects on society and human behavior. Instructors and students have relied on it for over twenty-five years to examine drugs and behavior from the behavioral, pharmacological, historical, social, legal, and clinical perspectives.

New to This Edition

  • PowerWeb topics are now integrated into the text.
  • Updated HealthQuest boxes are now on the web and better integrate the text and the software, providing enhanced opportunities for interactive learning.
  • Fully updated, this edition reflects the latest research and trends, addressing such drugs as OxyContin, the frequency of some correlates of addictions (abuse history, ADD, depression), dietary and other herbal supplements, and more.

Features

  • "Web Watch" boxes throughout the text suggest activities to complete on the Web.
  • Early coverage of prevention and "Targeting Prevention" boxes throughout provoke thought regarding drug-related behaviors that our society wants to reduce or prevent.
  • Chapter-opening boxes preview the resources available on the Online Learning Center, including interactive quizzing, behavior change objectives, Web links, PowerWeb, and more for students.
  • "Drugs in Depth" boxes present excellent starting points for classroom discussion.
  • Approaching drugs and drug use from a variety of perspectives (behavioral, pharmacological, historical, social, legal, and clinical), the book appeals to a wide range of students.
  • "Taking Sides" boxes encourage critical thinking by providing contrasting points of view on controversial subjects.
  • "Drugs in the Media" boxes take a critical look at media sources of information about drugs.
