This Side Up: Making Decisions About Drugs.
Cook, Maureen H.; Newman, Carol
This guide was developed as a source of information for young people who are faced with making decisions about drugs. Written in a "catchy" yet informative style, the materials presented address the following areas of concern: (1) definitions and effects of various drugs, including alcohol, tobacco, and narcotics; (2) physical and psychological effects of drugs; and (3) exercises designed to facilitate self-knowledge, awareness, and attitudes toward drug use. The format of this guide is self-instructional in nature, permitting individual users to explore drug use issues at their own pace. (Author/HLM)
