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. 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.



Clearly designed, with colour photos, glossary, resource section and index.

School Librarian Journal

Important series aimed at teenagers ... The amount of textual information is impressive, and the explanations, while clear, are often complex. Individuals' stories add greatly to the impact of the information, as do photographs and graphics, and parents and carers will find the book of vital interest ... The pul-no-punches approach is essential ... There is huge emphasis on sudden death, even at the first time of using, and the individuals' accounts of their experiences should put most teenagers off.
