Abuse of barbiturates and other prescription drugs is a serious problem in the United States, and it is the fastest growing drug abuse trend among American teens. In this candid volume, young adults get the truth about abusing these drugs and how addiction can result in permanent mental and physical harm, or even deadly reactions. This matter-of-fact narrative describes the effects on abusers, family members, friends, and society. It also explains the dangerous rise in illegal online pharmacies, drug interactions and effects, overdose and withdrawal, how to identify a drug user, treatment options, support groups, recovery, and drug prevention.
