Morphine is one of the oldest and most powerful pain relievers. Referred to as an opiate, morphine is one of the main chemicals found in opium, a gooey sap-like substance obtained from the opium poppy. Morphine can produce extraordinary relief from many types of pain, but also produces other effects such as sedation, constipation, lowered pulse and blood pressure, and feelings of extreme pleasure. Morphine and other opiate drugs are often called narcotic drugs, since in high doses they can produce heavy sedation and a sleep- or coma-like state called narcosis. Prolonged use of morphine can result in dependence and addiction, even when the pain that necessitated a prescription for the narcotic has disappeared. This use of prescription narcotic pain relievers for reasons other than pain relief is a growing problem in the United States and elsewhere. Morphine covers the history, uses, and dangers of this addictive drug.

From the Inside Flap:

Understanding Drugs provides a fact-based look at many of drugs that teens encounter, explains how they work, and identifies the risks and benefits of using them. Each title spotlights a drug of abuse or a treatment drug. Written in straightforward language, the books break down the biological and chemical processes relevant to each drug, explains the history of the drug, discusses the risks of using or abusing it, and guides readers toward reliable help for dealing with a drug-related problem. The Understanding Drugs series provides concise guides for high school students to the science, history, social issues, and health issues connected to common legal and illegal drugs.

This series is appropriate for high school students, health teachers, and counselors.

Dramatic "you-are-there" case studies help show how drugs impact on real life, and sidebars offer supplementary facts, compelling statistics, and historical information.
