Drugs and the Coach.
Clarke, Kenneth S., Ed.
This volume is based on the premise that professional preparation for coaching should include viable experiences in drug education, with particular reference to coping with drug-related problems. The first section provides general information on the purposes and effects of drugs, controls, and concepts of doping. The second section deals with four main purposes of drugs in the field of athletics: to cure, control, comfort, and improve. The governmental control of drug abuse is also discussed. The third section presents information on specific drugs, frequency of their use, and the effects. This section also includes charts with new federal and state drug laws. The final section includes some of the problems an athletic coach would encounter when acting as a counselor to his students. An agenda for a symposium "Drugs and the Coach" and a list of sources on drug abuse information are appended. (BRB)
