Overview

Today, alcohol and other drug abuse scientists have access to a broad array of clinical resources that integrate a commonsensical approach to addiction treatment with science. Addictions: A Comprehensive Guidebook is a superb example of one such resource. Here, in one volume, is both practical and scholarly information for alcohol and drug abuse specialists, primary care providers, clinicians, policy-makers, and others involved in programs that are geared to help those who abuse or are dependent on alcohol and other drugs. Its scope is a testament to how far drug abuse scientists and practitioners have come in defining what they do and to how they are able to do it effectively through a growing body of scientific behavioral research. Addictions is organized into seven parts that range from the prevalence of certain addictions to their identification and treatment to the social effects of these addictions. In fact, this volume contains nearly all of the basic information a professional or graduate student needs to learn about or treat substance abuse.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nishad J. Nadkarni, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book, edited by two psychologists with a significant amount of combined research and clinical experience within the field of addictions, is a compilation of the contemporary thinking of many addiction specialists.
Purpose: In contrast to what has historically been a largely clinically based field, the editors of this source book attempt to integrate research findings within the study of addictions in order to provide a more comprehensive model of alcohol and drug abuse treatment. By espousing this integrative approach, the editors feel this subject may be broached with greater depth than it has been in the past.
Audience: This book is written with graduate level practitioners and trainees of psychology, medicine, social work, and public health in mind. Also, certain clusters of chapters are appropriate for policy-makers involved in the study of the economics and other global implications of drug abuse.
Features: The editors organize the book into seven "clusters" or parts, each consisting of up to seven chapters. In each cluster contributors cover a circumscribed area of interest within addictions. Thus, each cluster could potentially stand alone. Each chapter is written by one or more authors with expertise in their respective areas, and summary tables of statistical and other pertinent information are presented in a clear manner. The index is particularly comprehensive and useful. End-of-chapter bibliographical information is generally exhaustive although somewhat out-of-date in some cases.
Assessment: This book represents a comprehensive sourcebook for diverse practitioners within the field of addictions. The editors succeed admirably in their goal of integrating research findings and clinical data in a field notable for a paucity of such integrative approaches.

From the Publisher
"The second edition of Addictions provides the most contemporary and comprehensive information currently available about the biological, clinical, social, and policy issues relevant to understanding substance use disorders. It is a particularly opportune time for the release of this volume. New basic and clinical research continues to inform us about the antecedents, course and consequences of substance use disorders; and for the first time in history, new legislation may offer true integration of addiction treatment into the rest of mainstream healthcare. These developments set the stage for McCrady and Epstein's timely update and expansion of their already widely referenced first edition." — A. Thomas McLellan, Chief Executive Officer, Treatment Research Institute

"This is a good exploration of etiology, specific drugs, assessment, treatment, and public policy. The contributors, experts in the field, provide evidence-based ideas and research findings. With the advances in research in the 14 years since the previous edition, especially in the areas of neuroimaging and genetics, this update is certainly justified." -Doody's
