I usually distinguish between what gives physical addiction (this, first of all, opiates, such as opium, morphine, heroin, and those close to them), and simply psychoactive substances. I call the first drugs. But, apparently, the question was asked about surfactants in general. In Russia, you can read it quite legally:
"Junk" by William Burroughs. Morphine.
"Electrocooling acid test" by Tom Wolfe. LSD.
"Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" by Hunter Thompson. A range of psychoactive drugs, in various combinations.
From fiction there is Bulgakov's "Morphine" (collection "Notes of a young doctor"). The author of Holotropic Breathwork, Stanislav Grof, studied LSD and published works on the topic. Well, if suddenly it is also interesting - Films in which the topic of drugs is touched upon - "Cocaine" and "Requiem for a Dream".
Alexander Shulgin "The Tryptamines I Knew and Loved" (TIHKAL) is truly impressive, detailed experience and sensations from the chemist and his wife.
