About the Book

The Uh-Oh Squad describes the 1970s working environment of Terros, a Phoenix, Arizona drug abuse agency. Anecdotes provide insight into the lives of staff employed at the agency. The book also provides analysis of categories of drugs and explains the effects of different substances on some of the people who use them, including drugs available now on the street. Terros is still providing mental and medical care for people with substance abuse problems.
