Handbook of Adolescent Drug Use Prevention: Research, Intervention Strategies, and Practice
Drug abuse is a major societal problem that damages individuals and communities psychologically, physically, socially, and economically. One way to mitigate these consequences is to prevent drug abuse before it starts, and there is good evidence that this can be done effectively. The goal of this book is to help researchers, practitioners, and policy makers prevent drug abuse, primarily among adolescents who either have not used drugs before or have just started using them. Highlighting the huge strides that prevention science has made in the past few decades and what still needs to be better understood, Lawrence Scheier, editor of the Handbook of Drug Use Etiology, has gathered eminent experts from various disciplines to create this comprehensive resource. Together, they distill what we know about effective programs and describe strategies to•capitalize on protective factors and curtail risk factors in young people;•prevent poor self-regulation and conduct disorders, which may lead to drug abuse;•promote positive change in families, schools, and larger communities; and•implement wide-scale and targeted media campaigns.The evidence-based drug prevention programs and strategies described in this book can also create secondary benefits by improving overall health and wellne...

Bugs as Drugs: Therapeutic Microbes for the Prevention and Treatment of Disease
Examining the enormous potential of microbiome manipulation to improve health Associations between the composition of the intestinal microbiome and many human diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease, cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorders, and cancer, have been elegantly described in the past decade.

Bugs as Drugs provides a much-needed overview of microbes in therapies and will serve as an excellent resource for scientists and clinicians as they carry out research and clinical studies on investigating the roles the microbiota plays in health and disease. In Bugs as Drugs, editors Robert A. Britton and Patrice D. Cani have assembled a fascinating collection of reviews that chart the history, current efforts, and future prospects of using microorganisms to fight disease and improve health.

The Mother's Checklist of Drug Prevention: Lessons in Drug Prevention: Handbook Two All The Little Things We Say and Do
Most parents are terrified by the idea of talking to their young children about drugs and alcohol. That fear causes many to wait far too long to start the discussion. Now, there is a solution to the problem: The Mother’s Checklist of Drug Prevention. You can stop worrying right now—you don’t have to talk to your six-year-old about heroin. In fact, most of this book has nothing at all to do with talking about drugs. Instead, it highlights all the little things we say and do when our children are young that can reduce stress and make them less likely as they get older to reach for drugs and alcohol to feel better. The Mother’s Checklist is an exciting follow-up to Jonathan and Kelly’s first handbook, Not All Kids Do Drugs, in which they gave parents the tools to help keep their kids safe and healthy in a world full of drugs. In The Mother’s Checklist, they provide a detailed guide parents can use to forge patterns of language and behavior that will help them raise happy, self-confident children who can grow into functional, accomplished, drug-free young adults. The concept for this book was created by a mother, but it is not just for mothers. Dads, grandparents, nannies, babysitters, counselors, teachers—anyone who cares for or about children—will benefit from the w...
