Understanding Drug Use and Addiction


Teens and young adults are hurting from addiction today more than anytime before. Understanding Drug Abuse and Addiction reaches out to teens with real-world examples and real-life explanations. This book discusses frankly and honestly what the disease of addiction does to a drug abuser's body and mind, and uses real scenarios to show teens how to avoid drugs. Opioids are psychoactive drugs derived from the opium poppy, such as heroin or morphine, or synthetic versions that mimic their effects, such as fentanyl or oxycodone.
