Critique:

A combination of personal stories, statistics and recent studies, and a discussion of the cultural/societal perception and treatment of the topic... clearly presented and easily digestible information useful for establishing a solid knowledge base. Library Journal Substance Abuse: The Ultimate Teen Guide is designed with the high school age student in mind who wants a broad overview of the physical and emotional issues associated with substance abuse and teen use of drugs and alcohol. While the teenage years are a time of great emotional and psychological change, there are many issues that may arise for the teen dealing with substance abuse. The work focuses on the exposure that teens today have to substances, the reasons that teens experiment with drugs and alcohol, the physical and emotional aspects of addiction, and relapse and recovery. Information in this work is presented through the personal stories of teens and young adults who have lived through the experience of drug and alcohol abuse; most of the stories focus on teenagers who have experienced substance abuse first-hand. Specific chapters address the experimentation stage, prevention of addiction, holistic methods of recovery, and recovery and relapse. The volume includes discussion questions at the end of each chapter to help teens verbalize their questions, up-to-date statistics, and first-hand advice from professionals. Teens who are experiencing issues with substance abuse first-hand, either themselves or with a parent or friend, will find this guide useful. The personal experiences shared in this book will appeal to this target audience and could be useful for students this age researching this topic. American Reference Books Annual
