Treating Drug Problems:
Volume 2



Treating Drug Problems, Volume 2 presents a wealth of incisive and accessible information on the issue of drug abuse and treatment in America.

Several papers lay bare the relationship between drug treatment and other aspects of drug policy, including a powerful overview of twentieth century narcotics use in America and a unique account of how the federal government has built and managed the drug treatment system from the 1960s to the present. Two papers focus on the criminal justice system.

The remaining papers focus on

  • Employer policies and practices toward illegal drugs.
  • Patterns and cycles of cocaine use in subcultures and the popular culture.
  • Drug treatment from a marketing, supply-and-demand perspective, including an analysis of policy options.

Treating Drug Problems, Volume 2 provides important information to policy makers and administrators, drug treatment specialists, and researchers.
