The relationship between AIDS and chemical dependency is explored in this timely book. Experts examine the role of alcohol and other drugs in the AIDS epidemic and suggest guidelines to chemical dependency professionals for halting the spread of the disease. They also offer insights into whether some drugs alter the immune system, whether drugs and alcohol play a role in predisposing some people to AIDS, and whether there are neurological, psychiatric, and medical differences between those who get the disease and those who don't. This challenging volume addresses some controversial issues, including mandatory AIDS testing, public health issues, the current and future trends of AIDS, and the legal, moral, and ethical implications of AIDS on chemical dependency programs.
