Description

Drugs and Youth: The Challenge of Today mainly focuses on the issue of drug addiction in youth and on how to bring this issue to the knowledge of the concerned sectors. This text first discusses the effects on the fetus and newborn of drug abuse in pregnancy. This book then explains the major drugs adolescents and young adults take, including solvents wherein a survey related to this is also presented in this publication. The effects of these drugs, such as physical and mental illnesses, are also tackled. This text also looks into the approaches in the treatment of adolescent drug addicts, including the withdrawal syndrome, group therapy, and psychotherapy. This book concludes by explaining the religious problematic and aftercare problems with the juvenile drug addict. This publication will be invaluable to medical practitioners, sociologists, social workers, ministers, and students doing a research on drug addiction in youth.
