Drugs and Alcohol: A Handbook for Young People.
Parker, Jim
This booklet, suitable for intermediate grade and junior high school students, concerns drug education and development of decision-making skills regarding drug use. Following an introduction, material is divided into four parts. Part 1, a glossary, defines such basic vocabulary as addiction, overdose, withdrawal, and dependence, and differentiates between narcotics, depressants, stimulants, hallucinogens, and inhalants. Part 2 discusses various drugs, including alcohol, marijuana, speed, cocaine, hallucinogens, and narcotics. The derivations of these drugs and their physical and mental effects are discussed. Parts 3 and 4 focus on why people take drugs and factors the individual should consider when faced with the opportunity to take drugs. (LP)
