Item description for Addiction's Many Faces: Tackling Drug Dependency Amongst Young People - Causes, Effects and Prevention by Felicitas Vogt...
Drugs are pervasive \227 pushed at school, at parties, in the street. Young people have to make choices about drugs as a fact of everyday life. Ideals, protest, demanding school work, the need for emotional intimacy, the natural desire to experiment, wanting to appear cool-can all make drug taking seem attractive.
So what are the secrets of helping young people learn about the many faces of addiction? What lessons do addiction have for us? And what about all forms of often socially sanctioned addiction such as shopping, sex, or fame? Felicitas Vogt invites you to consider:
- Your own addictions and the roots of addiction
- Why young people turn to drugs
- The effects of different drugs
- What helps personal growth, health and relationships
- Ways we can help prevent addiction
Here are young people and parents who speak powerfully from personal experience. They offer practical insights into prevention, how to cope with family drug problems and treatment options.
