Approaches vary, highlighting the lack of easy solutions.

The world has over 141 million drug abusers, and that number is on the rise. Different countries have different ways of dealing with substance abuse and some have been successful while others have been less so. Examine this deadly social issue through these case studies highlighting 13 different countries from around the world. Discover the different methods being used to prevent and handle the problem to find answers to such questions as: which countries seem to be able to keep the death rates from substance abuse low and how? How do countries control the supply of drugs? In which countries do tactics seem to be failing? The answers vary, highlighting the lack of easy solutions, and encouraging readers to think critically.

Each chapter in this unique collection follows the same outline to make comparing and contrasting among societies easy. The case studies encourage readers to draw their own conclusions about what can be done to decrease the supply of drugs around the world while keeping people from becoming addicted, so that the demand also decreases. An introduction to the volume defines the problem and provides an overall view of it, while bibliographies for each chapter provide readers with research tools for further study.
