    [synopsis] => Abuse of opioid drugs has become an epidemic in the United States, claiming victims of all ages and social backgrounds. The effects of drug addiction on individuals, families, and society at large are staggering. Now, more than ever, there is a need to prevent young people from getting involved with drugs through education and intervention programs. At the same time, effective treatment programs are needed for those who get hooked on opioids. This guide discusses the various types of opioid drugs, as well as their effect on the user's body. It provides information about risk factors for drug abuse, signs that someone might be in need of treatment, and suggestions for how to help and support a friend or loved one struggling with addiction. Advances in treatment and relapse prevention are explored, as are tried and true methods of drug rehabilitation. Each title in this series includes color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions--building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in history, a speech, or an instructional video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader's knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
