Crack cocaine has rapidly become a drug to be reckoned with in today's society, and this book introduces key health and social issues relating to crack. The result is an overview useful to any individual working with or concerned about crack use and addiction. Highlights for the treatment professional include a description of clinical manifestations and medical complications, the effects of crack addiction on family dynamics and the school/work environment, and a chapter on treatment options. There is an additional focus on drug prevention aspects and societal responses that would be helpful to educators, prevention workers, and policy administrators. The informed layperson will also find answers to many of his/her own questions. Appendixes include Dr. Nelson Clark's "Fourteen Basic Steps to Recovery" and a brief list of references. This concise discussion of a very complex issue is recommended for larger libraries and subject specific collections.
