Is there any info out there about dancers (ballet, modern, all types) and any kind of drugs? This would include appetite suppressants, uppers, painkillers, and is the unlikely possibility of beta blockers. Thanks much.

Dancers Learn to Get By on Aspirin, Coffee and Grit
by BLAIR TINDALL for the New York Times

Whether Ms. Kirkland’s book was grand testimony to an era of excess or simply a snapshot of one brilliant but troubled artist’s world, drug abuse has by all accounts become increasingly rare in American dance. The field has shifted from a climate of denial about anorexia, bulimia and substance abuse to one valuing holistic health practices.

I don't know if salt is considered to be a drug, but a grain of that is what parts of Kirkland's book should be taken with.
