Drug Abuse: A Challenge for Education.
Conte, Anthony E.; Mason, Eugene R.
This report provides comprehensive information regarding drug use/abuse. The first chapter describes drugs -- those generally accepted by society as well as those less accepted -- and discusses potential psychic and physical dangers inherent in their abuse. The second chapter explains the reasons offered by drug users for their generally unacceptable social behavior. Chapter three is devoted to drug abuse education and includes a comprehensive State-by-State description of drug abuse prevention programs. Chapter four reviews facilities and programs available for treatment of drug addiction, and describes recently developed treatment methods. Appendixes include an extensive annotated list of resources that may be used to develop educational programs for students, teachers, and administrators. (JF)
