Description:

Why do people abuse alcohol and other drugs? What are the major psychological effects of these substances on the body? Rather than an in-depth pharmacological approach to substance abuse. Psychology of Alcohol and Other Drugs explores concepts of individual use origins, personality and gender differences in drug use, and recovery from dependency. Beginning with the origins of both legal and illicit drugs, John Jung explores the history of drug use in America. This eye-opening

Whether one freely admits to a drug dependency or claims a lifestyle free from addiction, this text explores the views of those both for and against drug availability. Students are exposed to a variety of social and political opinions and evaluate claims that they will encounter in their day-to-day life.

Armed with the practical knowledge from this book, students are more likely to make intelligent choices for themselves.
