9780205216963: Drugs, Behavior, and Modern Society with MySearchLab with eText -- Access Card Package (7th Edition)

This text examines the impact of drug-taking behavior on our society and our daily lives.  The use and abuse of a wide range of licit and illicit drugs are discussed from historical, biological, psychological, and sociological perspectives.

 

For undergraduate Drugs and Behavior courses .

 

In today's world, drugs and their use present a social paradox, combining the potential for good and for bad. As a society and as individuals, we can be the beneficiaries of drugs or their victims. Drugs, Behavior, and Modern Society, Sixth Edition features a comprehensive review of psychoactive drugs, and is notable for the attention it gives to two aspects of drug-taking behavior that have been underreported in other texts: steroid abuse and inhalant abuse.
