Annotated Bibliography of Literature on Narcotic Addiction.
Bowden, R. Renee
Nearly 150 abstracts have been included in this annotated bibliography; its purpose has been to scan the voluminous number of documents on the problem of drug addiction in order to summarize the present state of knowledge on narcotic addiction and on methods for its treatment and control. The literature reviewed has been divided into the following twelve categories: definition of addiction; classification and census of addicts; characteristics of addicts, both adults and adolescents; treatment and rehabilitation programs, including imprisonment, hospitalization, institutional group counseling, and mutual aid organizations for ex-addicts; probation and parole; case histories and popular articles; law and enforcement; general works; state programs; international aspects; on-going projects; and addenda. The publication also includes synopses of the content in each of the first five categories. (Author/SES)
