Drugs in Perspective examines the rapidly changing field of chemical dependency with an emphasis on family dynamics, the impact of family on individuals, and their use of alcohol/drugs. Students will gain a full understanding of the dynamics of chemical dependency and the domino effects that can have on someone's life. Students will also foster and develop an effective perspective on the multifaceted aspects and problems associated with alcohol/drug use, abuse, and addiction. Richard Fields has 30 years of first-hand experience performing clinical work with substance abuse users and their families, and he relays his experience and research in such a way that is approachable and engaging for students. The tenth edition of Drugs in Perspective boasts a new section on Medical Marijuana and a new section on Mindfulness Education in England. Both of these sections were added to reflect current research and discussions in the field.
