Conducting Drug Abuse Research with Minority Populations: Advances and Issues brings you the voices of drug abuse researchers who discuss the most important concerns about conducting research in drug-taking minority populations.

In addition, find new ways to involve community members in the research process, and you'll come to more fully understand the impact of cultural values, attitudes, and norms in the drug-taking patterns of minority persons.
