Stimulants are drugs that speed up activity in the brain. It's a class of drugs that ranges from caffeine to ADHD medication to methamphetamine-and as those example suggest, the effects can range from mild to medically beneficial to potentially deadly. This book looks at the history and effects of stimulants both legal and illegal. From caffeine and aspirin to heroin and meth, drugs are an inescapable part of life in the 21st century. Addiction, once viewed as a shameful secret, is now widely understood to be a brain disease that can be treated. This series explores the many facets of this complex topic, providing students with the facts they need to navigate drug use and abuse in their daily lives.
