Drugs, Behavior, and Modern Society Description

Provides students with a deeper understanding of what impacts drug use.

 

The eighth edition of Drugs, Behavior, and Modern Society examines the impact of drug-taking behavior on our society and our daily lives. The use and abuse of a wide range of licit and illicit drugs are discussed from historical, biological, psychological, and sociological perspectives.

In today's world, drugs and their use present a social paradox, combining the potential for good and for bad. As a society and as individuals, we can be the beneficiaries of drugs or their victims. This text features a comprehensive review of psychoactive drugs, and is notable for the attention it gives to two aspects of drug-taking behavior that have been underreported in other texts: steroid abuse and inhalant abuse.

 

This text is available in a variety of formats — digital and print. Pearson offers its titles on the devices students love through  CourseSmart, Amazon, and more.
