Synopsis

Solvents by Karla Fitzhugh

Solvents are chemicals which are used as ingredients in a variety of products: such as glues, aerosols and lighter fuel. Some of the properties that make solvents useful also give them the potential to be abused. With an alarming number of people dying from solvent abuse every year, this book aims to give a clear picture of solvent abuse and the damage it can do. The topics covered include the different types of solvents, the law, people who abuse solvents, the risks of solvent misuse, and how to help abusers overcome their addiction. It is clearly designed, with colour photos, glossary, resource section and index.
