What everyone should know about teenagers and drugs. Through MRI scanning scientists have discovered that the brain is not fully matured until a person reaches about 25 years of age. The effect of drugs, including alcohol and nicotine, on the maturing brain can be devastating and is always harmful. The most effective way to deal with drug problems is within the family. With so many drugs on the market it is vital for everyone to keep informed and up-to-date. The authors openly explain the seemingly difficult scientific concepts behind drugs; not just their history and sources but also how they affect the brain and the acute and chronic side effects they have on the body. A book that is accessible, clear and straightforward, as well as sobering - the facts and figures speak for themselves.
