Why are some drugs considered socially acceptable while others are demonized? What makes these definitions so widespread? Who benefits from these conceptualizations? The Drug Paradox examines both the empirically founded and the socially constructed facets of drugs and drug use, highlighting the incongruous aspects of laws, policies, and programming that aim to address behaviours around drugs. The authors explore this paradox, arguing that Canada’s punitive approach to addressing drug use continues to exist alongside harm-reduction strategies and that these competing approaches ultimately impede Canada’s ability to deal effectively with substance misuse. Using a policy-oriented approach while also emphasizing the utility of a multifaceted biopsychosocial model, this text provides students with a foundation in the sociology of psychoactive substances in the Canadian context. It covers a broad range of issues—models of addiction, the history of Canada’s drug laws, media representation, government responses to substance use, and international perspectives on drug policy—and addresses various research areas that are important for students to consider when trying to make sense of the competing discourses on drugs in society. The Drug Paradox is ideal for use in sociology courses on drugs and drug use and will also appeal to those focusing on drug use from a criminology, public health, or policy perspective.

Recognizing that clients with substance misuse problems represent a significant portion of most social workers caseloads, Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs offers a comprehensive overview of the substance misuse problem and how it directly affects clients. Research suggests that each user seriously affects the lives of four to six other people. This compendium was produced in response to the growing concern of social workers about the limited material written solely for work with this population. It grew out of a 5-year faculty development grant sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Service and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
