This remarkable book enables those with little or no background in science or health care to understand the complex issues surrounding drug use. In jargon-free language, it discusses the differences in the psychological and physical effects of various drugs and how particular substances affect certain people in different ways. Alcoholism, Drug Addiction, and the Road to Recovery: Life on the Edge provides current, reliable, and unbiased information on methods for dealing with dependency upon alcohol and central nervous system depressants, hallucinogens, heroin, nicotine, marijuana, caffeine, amphetamines, designer drugs such as Ecstasy, and steroids. Originally published in 1992 as The Facts About Drug Use, this updated edition contains new information about the effects of alcohol and recreational, mood-altering drugs on the body, the reasons individuals give for initiating drug use, and the treatment options available to those who become dependent on drug use as a way of life.
