CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As all of our customers will be aware, the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic is likely to cause disruption to many services. Although everyone at Dandy is currently fit and well, restrictions that have been imposed, both voluntary and compulsory, have already begun to affect our supply chains. This is particularly true for our many overseas customers, where border and transport restrictions can be imposed at little notice. We will always try to keep you informed of any problems that may affect your order, but we ask for your understanding at this difficult time. If you have any questions, then please email us at enquiries@dandybooksellers.com, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Electronic products such as e-books and online subscriptions should be largely unaffected, but please allow us a little longer time than usual to respond.

Drugs of Abuse is a concise, easy-to-read guide for healthcare professionals who encounter drug abuse.

This book has been comprehensively revised since the first edition, and includes new chapters on gamma hydroxybutyrate and the internet as an information resource. Also covered are the prevalence of drug use, a detailed assessment of side effects, and interactions between illicit drugs and conventional medicines.

Each chapter covers a particular drug group. These include:
  • opioids
  • cannabis
  • cocaine
  • amfetamines
  • ecstasy
  • LSD
  • volatile substances
  • performance-enhancing drugs
  • OTC and prescription medicines
  • nicotine
  • alcohol.

Drug abuse is a problem which affects all parts of today's society - it is not constrained to one social class, to 'hard drugs' alone, nor even to illicit substances.
This book is an accessible source of detailed information that can be read from cover to cover, or used as a reference. It will appeal to healthcare professionals, as well as to those working with drug users in the community.
