Research Reports on Abuse of Anabolic Steroids, Cocaine, Heroin, Inhalants, Methamphetamine, and Nicotine
Alan I. Leshner (fr)
A series of research reports to increase understanding of drug abuse & addiction & the health effects assoc. with taking drugs. “Anabolic steroids” is the familiar name for synthetic substances related to the male sex hormones (androgens). Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant that directly affects the brain. Heroin is an illegal, highly addictive drug processed from morphine, a naturally occurring substance extracted from poppy plants. Inhalants are volatile substances that produce chemical vapors that can be inhaled to induce a psychoactive, or mind-altering, effect. Meth is a powerfully addictive stimulant that dramatically affects the central nervous system. The drug is made easily in clandestine labs with relatively inexpensive over-the-counter ingred. Nicotine, one of more than 4,000 chemicals found in the smoke from tobacco products, is the primary component in tobacco that acts on the brain. Each report describes the drug, its effects & health consequences, abuse prevention & treatment, & sources for further information. This set also includes a chart on commonly abused drugs & principles of drug addiction treatment. Illus.
