This insightful work addresses the problem of preventing, managing, and treating illicit drug use. It approaches drug use and abuse from several perspectives - including the scientific study of abused drugs, epidemiology, clinical drug treatment, and basic science - to illustrate the various reasons for abuse on both an individual and societal level. Drug Policy and Human Nature provides a thorough psychological analysis of the relationship between drugs, culture, and human nature and facilitates a more collaborative and effective approach to improving American drug policy.
