Drugs prescribed by doctors can save lives-but they can also destroy them if used incorrectly. This book looks at the various types of prescription drugs, including painkillers, ADHD medication, sleeping pills, and muscle relaxants, that can be tremendously helpful if used in the right context but deadly if used in the wrong one. From caffeine and aspirin to heroin and meth, drugs are an inescapable part of life in the 21st century. Addiction, once viewed as a shameful secret, is now widely understood to be a brain disease that can be treated. This series explores the many facets of this complex topic, providing students with the facts they need to navigate drug use and abuse in their daily lives.
