Alcohol (Drug Library)
Reading Level: Young Adult
This comprehensive title gives a clearly written and well-organized survey of the over 5,000 year relationship between human beings and alcohol. Monroe sees alcohol as an ``accepted drug'' to which teens are especially vulnerable; they are influenced by its easy availability, peer pressure, poor role models, and media hype. Familial predisposition, which has been noted by researchers, is also addressed. Current treatment options for teens are outlined.
