Abstract: The book is designed to help students learn about alcohol and other drugs and their effects. It also encourages students to understand that their decision regarding use or abstinence must take into account their personal individuality, family life, and social or community life. For instructors, the book provides a case-situation approach to textbook development and a variety of thought-provoking questions to assist both students and teachers in making drug education classes a living laboratory for making wise decisions about drug use. The book presents information in the following areas: legalization/decriminalization; drugs and the law; prevention; approaches to counseling; parents and drugs; substance abuse in the workplace; alcohol; drugs and pregnancy; fetal alcohol syndrome; uses and abuses of barbiturates; cocaine/crack; heroin; marijuana; smoking; drug use and HIV/AIDS; and drugs and sports. Each chapter contains subject-specific references for students, and a separate section presents references for teachers. References, bibliography
