Ferguson, Patricia, Ed.; And Others
This report is the sixth in a series of reports designed to summarize the empirical research findings and major theoretical approaches relating to the issues of drug use and abuse. This volume reviews some of the major research studies which explore the nonmedical use of drugs as it relates to all modes of death. Included are studies describing suicide, homicide, morbidity and mortality as these pertain to the drug abuser. The report also describes a number of classification and reporting systems for drug-related death. The summary for each reported study provides the reader with the purpose, methodology, findings and conclusions of that study. (Author/SJL)
