About

Overview

The Encyclopedia of Drugs and Alcohol is a guide to prescription, over-the counter, and recreational drugs. While simply knowing more about the dangers of drugs and the drugs themselves won't make you impervious to substance abuse, it will help you to make informed, educated decisions about drug use. Don't allow a lack of knowledge to turn you into just another statistic. Use this book to arm yourself with the knowledge of how to correctly use beneficial drugs and to wisely avoid drugs that can only hurt you. The Encyclopedia of Drugs and Alcohol is alphabetically arranged and contains black and white illustrations. Excellent for children, teenagers, adults, teachers, and parents.
