This volume presents current knowledge about the use, misuse, and abuse of drugs by an often neglected and misunderstood segment of our population. The various systems involved in the problem are addressed in turn. Topics include interaction with clinicians and the impact of the use of folk medicines, and interdisciplinary treatment. Epidemological and methodological issues specific to this population are also considered. The essays collected in this edition appeared originally in the Journal of Drug Issues Vol. 19, No. 2, Spring 1989.
