Prescription drug abuse( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the modern world, physicians prescribe a multitude of medications, most derived from natural substances, to treat various bodily and mental disorders and some of the substances used also have a pleasurable neurological effect, creating a sense of euphoria, a tranquilizing effect, or intensifying alertness and focus. Over time, drug addiction and abuse has become a social justice and public health concern around the world. Governments have responded to addiction and drug abuse epidemics by banning the use of certain substances, but such efforts are not very efficacious and, instead, tend to result in the birth of black markets and criminal underworld industries involved in the production and distribution of illicit substances. In the 2010s, the drug crisis du jour in the United States involves the misuse and abuse of prescription drugs, substances developed as medications that have an intoxicating effect and so are also sought and used by individuals for recreation or to self-medicate. Because the supply of drugs cannot be completely eliminated without placing patients at risk, legislators, public health experts, and others working on the issue must struggle to balance the needs of patients with the effort to stem the tide of abuse. - Publisher/Preface

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Is Who We Were: In The 1920s is an offspring of our 13-volume Working Americans series. This new title is devoted to one decade -- the 1920s. It represents all classes, dozens of occupations, and all regions of the country. This comprehensive look at the decade when consumerism, new freedoms for women, new inventions, and shifting social ethics were introduced presents American history through the eyes and ears of everyday Americans, not the words of historians or politicians. This Is Who We Were: In The 1920s presents 28 profiles of individuals and families -- their life at home, on the job, and in their neighborhood -- with lots of photos and historical images of the time. These stories are told through the eyes and ears of everyday Americans, some struggling and some successful, but all authentic. Together, the profiles, with the other sections of the book, present a complete picture of what it was like to live in America in the 1920s, from the doctor who started an uproar by distributing birth control literature to his patients, to the inventor of the zipper, to the Kansas woman who advocated for the censorship of silent films, and many more pivotal events that made the 1920s unique and groundbreaking. - Publisher
