Heroin in the Age of Crack-Cocaine

Part of the Drugs, Health, and Social Policy Series


Heroin in the Age of Crack-Cocaine by James A. Inciardi

This book presents an historical overview of heroin use in the USA, as well as articles by experts in the field which focus on current developments and emerging trends in prevention, treatment, distribution and consumption. Filling a void in the literature on what is known about the `new' heroin users, this volume also updates the reader on the status of ageing heroin-addicted populations who initiated use of the drug prior to the `age of cocaine'.
