Summary

Considered the most comprehensive drug text on the market, Goldberg's four-color text encourages readers to examine the motivation for drug use, social implications of drug use, legal ramifications, and factors affecting how drugs interact with the human body. It provides a look at the history and culture surrounding drug use and abuse, key information regarding specific types of drugs, and a review of drug treatment, education, and prevention approaches and programs.

DRUGS ACROSS THE SPECTRUM, FIFTH EDITION also includes a number of resources to support active learning, both in and out of the classroom. From the JoinIn on TurningPoint in-class lecture tool to the support of critical thinking with the new "Fact or Fiction" boxes and popular "Thinking Critically" boxes, students are engaged and educated about the topics and issues related to drugs in society.
