From Academic Search Complete

-“A well-organized volume offering clear definitions and explanations. The alphabetical entries range from a half to a full page and consider common prescriptions and over-the-counter and recreational drugs, and provide information on alcohol. Recovery groups (Al-Anon, Narcotics Anonymous); activities (binge drinking, crime); illnesses (hepatitis, stroke); and reactions (alcoholic poisoning, coma) associated with substance abuse are also discussed. Some entries include helpful lists or charts (blood alcohol levels, slang terms, stages of drug use). The "Where to Go for Help" section includes organizations, hot lines, and Web sites. A short bibliography includes a couple of standard resources and several that are dated. The average-quality, black-and-white photographs are primarily decorative. This volume will fill a gap in middle school reference collections for a broad, accessible title on the topic and be a welcome addition to high school collections as well. It will be useful for students writing reports and those examining their own substance use.”
