What are illicit drugs? Why do people use them? What are the effects on the body of using drugs? Are some drugs more dangerous than others? What is addiction? Why are some people able to stop using drugs at will while others become addicted? Respected science author Magaret O. Hyde and Yale University School of Medicine physician John F. Setaro take a fresh approach to the problem of drug abuse among teens. This book looks at drugs and drug abuse honestly and realistically, from a review of the intoxicating and health effects of drugs to the war on drugs to the debate over legalization. The authors' straightforward descriptions of the physical, psychological, social, and legal effects of drug use will be highly informative to those teens in the process of making a decision of about drugs. The book will also benefit the one out of ten American teens who have already used drugs-and will be invaluable to the many for whom drugs have become a dependency. A self test for drug dependency and a list of website for organizations that can provide further information and assistance complete this practical, teen-friendly guide.
