Drugs: Know the facts, cut your risks

There’s no such thing as a drug-free society!

For many years, policies defining the fight against drugs have been the subject of passionate ideological debates, but the low quality of the information has opened the door to often inaccurate and contradictory messages and encouraged excessive and poorly adapted attitudes, too often ranging between indifference and dramatization.

Without trying to answer every question, this book provides the essential reference points for understanding and for action. It includes explanations on:

·         The various psychotropic drugs;

·         Their effects;

·         Treatments;

·         Quebec statistics;

The laws and available assistance.
