Summary

Inhalants are very dangerous drugs of abuse, yet they are plentiful in most homes; more than 1,000 household products possessing abuse potential. Abused inhalants contain volatile substances that are self-administered as gases or vapors to induce a mind-altering effect. Most inhalants depress the central nervous system and deprive the body of oxygen. Because these substances only become vapor when exposed to air, they are different than other inhaled drugs, such as marijuana and crack cocaine.

Inhalants identifies types of inhalants, explains the ways they are abused, the risks of abusing them, and how to seek treatment. Dramatic "you-are-there" case studies show how inhalants impact real life, and sidebars offer supplementary facts, compelling statistics, and historical information.

Chapters include:

  • Introduction to Inhalants
  • Historical Use of Inhalants
  • Biological Mechanisms of Inhalants
  • Abuse of Inhalants
  • Addiction and Treatment of Inhalant Abuse
  • Inhalants and the Law
  • Future Trends for Inhalants.
