"Alcohol, drugs, and tobacco cause a multitude of effects in the lives of children and teenagers. Drawing on the previously published Encyclopedia of Drugs, Alcohol, and Addictive Behavior (Macmillan, 2d. ed, 2001), this set is designed to interest and educate students in middle school and older as well as general browsers. This work contains more than 200 alphabetically arranged articles addressing the nature of, treatments for, and social issues surrounding addictive substances and behaviors. Articles from the previously published set have been revised to suit the needs of younger readers, their teachers and parents, and nonspecialists. ...Articles are clear and well written, and the appealing layout includes photographs, diagrams, and sidebars that mention interesting facts or suggest fiction titles that deal with similar issues. ... Each volume begins with a complete table of contents and concludes with a comprehensive glossary, annotated bibliography (including Web sites), and index (volume 3 contains a cumulative index). A listing of organizations (including addresses, phone numbers, and Web sites) to contact for further information or assistance is also provided. ... Containing sufficient information to serve the needs of a variety of student users, this set will appeal to the casual browser as well. It is recommended for junior- and senior-high school and public libraries. It is broader in scope than Gale's Drugs and Controlled Substances: Information for Students which has entries for 50 drugs, but not for other, related topics." -- Booklist (May 2003)
"Gr 7 Up This reworking of the second edition of the Encyclopedia of Drugs, Alcohol, and Addictive Behavior is targeted at younger and general readers. The 190 alphabetically arranged articles range form one to six pages in length and yield a comprehensive look at the nature of, treatments for, and social issues surrounding addictive substances and behaviors. Topics include specific drugs, diagnoses, treatments, legal and social implications, drug trafficking, cultural pressures, and related compulsive behaviors such as cutting. On the topics of alcohol and alcoholism alone, there are more than 25 articles. ... Tables, graphs, and narrative sidebars augment the entries, as do captioned color photographs and diagrams. Terms defined in the margins are of particular help. Individual articles are effectively cross-referenced. A selected bibliography is included in each volume with citations for articles, nonfiction and fiction titles, and Web sites specific to several areas of interest. ... The attractive layout and handy reference features make this an adolescent-friendly compilation of authoritative articles." School Library Journal (June 2003)
