August 1994 | 280 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The increased number of ethnic groups living in Western societies offers challenges to the successful development and delivery of drug abuse services. This volume examines the history, patterns of drug use, customs and beliefs of five major racial groups - African, Asian, European, Native and Hispanics - and their relation to current treatment for drug abuse. Contributors address critical issues and make recommendations for change in public policy.
