Drug and Alcohol Abuse: The Authoritative Guide
for Parents, Teachers, and Counselors
Milhorn H. Thomas, Jr.
With a 100-plus-page pharmacological index to drugs commonly abused, Milhorn's guide to
discovery, assistance, and recovery of youthful drug and alcohol abusers is replete with
information. In explicit, accessible prose, addressing the not-my-child, ostrichlike approach
of many parents, Milhorn examines the reasons kids use drugs and offers profiles of drug
abusers. He clearly delineates the roles of parents, teachers, and counselors and includes
notes on a grade-oriented curriculum beginning in kindergarten. Available treatment
recommendations do not stop at counseling or clinics. Milhorn also includes advice in regard
to the child returning home, covering such matters as family restoration, lapses, and the
potential for secondary medical or psychiatric disorders. A valuable resource.
