Drugs, Society, and Human Behavior presents the most recent findings about drug use, abuse, as well as how these substances affect not only the users but also the society. It has been one of the most reliable resources on the subject for the past 30 years, commended by both students and educators for its clear, highly comprehensible approach. Written as a collaboration among Carl Hart, Charles Ksir, and Oakley Ray, the book deals with drug use as viewed in a number of academic standpoints, ranging from pharmacological to medical, while also dissecting it from a communal, legal, and behavioral viewpoint. The integrated Online Learning Center serves as an additional resource for students and professors, aiding them to better understand and apply the concepts. Drugs, Society, and Human Behavior (ISBN 9780073380902) is divided into 7 sections, the first of which talks about the use of drugs and its negative impacts in today's modern society. Section 2 explains how drugs affect the nervous system, followed by a section on different types of stimulants and depressants. Section 4 is all about alcohol, followed by ‘familiar' drugs like caffeine, tobacco, household drugs, and addictive supplements and over-the-counter pills. Section 6 explains restricted drugs, while section 7 talks about prevention and treatment. Written by experts in psychology and psychiatry, this book is truly beneficial not only for academic use but as a general reference about substance use, abuse, and its implications. The authors are all respected names: Dr. Carl Hart is an award-winning professor and psychiatrist, Charles Ksir boasts a 34-year career in research and teaching at the University of Wyoming, and Oakley Ray, has a rich background in psychiatry, psychology, pharmacology, and neuropsychopharmacology.
