Summary

A long-time market leader, Drugs, Society and Human Behavior examines drugs from all perspectives--behavioral, pharmacological, historical, social, legal, and clinical. The book not only provides up-to-date facts, but will also help readers make well-informed decisions about their behaviors and choices.

Current information on the increasing use of inhalants among young children and adolescents is discussed.

Addiction, treatment, and recovery are discussed early in the text (Chapter 3) to reflect the importance of this content. Theories on addiction and some of the risk factors involved with addiction are discussed as a means of preventing future addictions. All components of tobacco, not just nicotine, are included, recognizing that tar and carbon monoxide also pose health risks. Provides a three-dimensional visual model of chemical substances that is particularly helpful for students who are unfamiliar with chemistry.
