Synopsis

Drug Use and Australian Society provides readers with a broad understanding of the history of drug use in Australian society, outlines theoretical perspectives on drug use and explore public policy responses to drug use. The chapters in Part Two draw on these perspectives and provide case examples to focus on the five pillars of Australian and international drug policy: primary prevention; treatment; harm reduction; laws and regulations; and law enforcement.
