Summary

Summary

Is it any wonder parents feel helpless to protect their children from the growing drug epidemic - cheap drugs are available everywhere and the unique pressures of modern life make them even more attractive to confused adolescents. But there are solutions that, according to Dr. Ronald C. Main and Judy Zervas, can only be achieved when parents knock down the barriers to effective communication with their children. This practical guide aims to give parents necessary insight into why young people use drugs and how the problem can be dealt with at various stages - from initial experimentation through to hard-core abuse.
