Drug Abuse, A Resource Guide for Educators.
Dunigan, Jay T., Ed.
Providing educators with a comprehensive resource document that will be useful in researching and developing effective drug abuse education programs is the intent of this document. As an orientation to its use, two terms are discussed at length--addiction and habituation. In addition, some of the most commonly used drugs are described. Bibliographic references comprise the major portion of the book. Citations are given for books, lay periodical articles, professional journal articles, pamphlets and booklets, reports, indexes, abstracts, bibliographies, glossaries, audio visual aids, and agencies offering drug abuse information. Supplementary narrative material in several areas elaborates on: (1) a chronology of important federal legislation regarding narcotics and dangerous drugs, (2) legal considerations as to drug involvement by students in schools, (3) program suggestions for drug education programs, (4) a list of stimulant and depressant drugs, and (5) a comprehensive glossary of slang and scientific drug terms.
