About

Overview

Even more so than family, friends are able to influence each other’s recovery from drug addiction, but to do so requires a thorough understanding of the situation. Readers will learn the signs of abuse for various drugs, along with reasons for abuse, how to confront the friend, and how to encourage treatment. The many sources for further reference fulfill Common Core Standards by offering a means through which readers may draw on information from other sources and solve a problem efficiently. This title teaches an important and especially relevant lesson: drug recovery lasts a lifetime but addiction doesn’t have to.
