Editorial Reviews

Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

"For those who are preparing for their board examinations in addiction psychiatry, this textbook may serve as a study guide and starting point for a more detailed review. For general psychiatrists, the text includes sufficient detail to help them through most clinical situations they may face in daily practice."--Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
American Journal of Psychiatry

"Excellent....The authors provide us with a textbook that is quick to read and easy to digest. I have found over the years that residents enjoy this book and can learn from it readily....The clinician will find this textbook useful and handy in a busy practice. As a certified addictions specialist, I have found it useful in my day-to-day practice. I highly recommend this book and will certainly keep a copy of it on my shelf."--American Journal of Psychiatry
APA PsycCRITIQUES

"This is an important, accessible, comprehensive book; I commend the authors and editors for their work....This is a useful text for teaching about the addictive disorders in many fields, including medicine, psychology, social work, counseling, and nursing....Stands out as a readable and authoritative text....This text deserves to be read by mental and behavioral health care professionals before it takes its useful and deserved place on their reference bookshelves."--APA PsycCRITIQUES

Addiction Today

"As a student in the mental-health field, this book has already been helpful in my studies....A valuable resource to anyone who works or is thinking about working in the addiction-treatment field."--Addiction Today
From the Publisher

"Carefully selected experts within their respective domains have put together an astonishingly comprehensive reference work, well edited and accessible....This work has truly become a classic in the field!"--Leo Goldberger, PhD, Department of Psychology (Emeritus), New York University

"Clinical Textbook of Addictive Disorders, Third Edition, nicely depicts the many recent advances that have taken place in the addictions field. The latest neuroscientific knowledge--including neurobiological mechanisms, pathophysiology, and genetics--is well presented, as are current evidence-based intervention methods. The authors assembled here represent the top experts in their respective areas. This new edition is an ideal tool for all mental health practitioners and trainees involved in diagnosing and treating persons with addictive disorders, as well as for researchers and educators."--Pedro Ruiz, MD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Texas Medical School at Houston

"This is more than just an update of the classic reference. In this edition, addictive disorders have been placed in a context reflecting their expression in the real world. Thus, polydrug use, psychiatric comorbidity, and 'behavioral addictions,' such as pathological gambling, are now emphasized. Moreover, issues related to addiction across populations (e.g., ethnic groups, gender, and children/adolescents) are now addressed. The result is a volume that will be useful for professionals in social services, health care, and public policy, as well as advanced students training for these professions."--Thomas H. Brandon, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of South Florida, and Tobacco Research and Intervention Program, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute

"I have been looking forward to the new edition of this useful teaching tool. Beyond covering the basics that readers expect from an addiction text--pharmacology of specific substances and major treatment modalities--the editors also address a breadth of other topics, including polydrug use, comorbidities, HIV/AIDS, and the needs of women and older adults. The comprehensiveness and readability of this text promise to make it a favorite among clinical educators, medical students, and residents."--Joyce A. Tinsley, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Connecticut; Executive Director, American Association of Directors of Psychiatric Residency Training

"An essential clinical resource, this revised and updated volume features comprehensive yet focused coverage of the most important and innovative topics in the ever-changing field of substance abuse treatment. Written by noted practitioners and researchers, chapters range from the pharmacology of psychoactive drugs to the latest psychosocial interventions and medications shown to be effective in treating patients with alcohol and drug problems. This is an ideal text for providing students with a broad overview of the field as well as specific guidelines for clinical practice. Practitioners will find it a handy reference for state-of the-art conceptualizations and treatments for the full range of substance use disorders."--Arnold M. Washton, PhD, private practice, New York, New York, and Princeton, New Jersey

Journal of Clinical Psychiatry - Peter R. Martin
"For those who are preparing for their board examinations in addiction psychiatry, this textbook may serve as a study guide and starting point for a more detailed review. For general psychiatrists, the text includes sufficient detail to help them through most clinical situations they may face in daily practice."--Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
American Journal of Psychiatry - James Allen Wilcox
"Excellent....The authors provide us with a textbook that is quick to read and easy to digest. I have found over the years that residents enjoy this book and can learn from it readily....The clinician will find this textbook useful and handy in a busy practice. As a certified addictions specialist, I have found it useful in my day-to-day practice. I highly recommend this book and will certainly keep a copy of it on my shelf."--American Journal of Psychiatry
PsycCRITIQUES

"This is an important, accessible, comprehensive book; I commend the authors and editors for their work....This is a useful text for teaching about the addictive disorders in many fields, including medicine, psychology, social work, counseling, and nursing....Stands out as a readable and authoritative text....This text deserves to be read by mental and behavioral health care professionals before it takes its useful and deserved place on their reference bookshelves."--PsycCRITIQUES
Drugs and Alcohol Today

"A magnificent book. I would particularly wish to point readers in the direction of Part IV, Special populations. This is probably the most comprehensive review of this area that I have seen in a comprehensive textbook available at this price....Should you read this book? Undoubtedly, the answer has to be a resounding yes....It would be very difficult for someone to not find chapters that interest them but in some ways what is excellent about this book is those subjects that do not routinely cross your path in clinical practice."--Drugs and Alcohol Today
John K. Larson
This second edition of an extremely well-regarded textbook features 52 prestigious clinicians, educators, and researchers in the addiction field. This volume presents the essential components of addiction medicine and incorporates recent developments in the field with a number of significant additions and updates to the original edition. The targeted audience includes healthcare providers at all levels of experience, including medical students, psychiatric and primary care residents, psychiatric educators, and veteran practitioners. This volume will be particularly useful as a primary text for teaching and supervising residents and fellows. It is divided into five sections, with the first providing an excellent overview and historical context for the topics that follow. Section two is concerned with screening tools, the evaluation process, and the use of the laboratory. The third section contains chapters on specific substances. Section four covers treatment issues for special populations including minorities, geriatrics, adolescents, AIDS patients, and patients with co-morbid psychiatric illness. The final section explores treatment selection and specific treatment modalities including individual, family, group, cognitive, and psychopharmacological approaches. There is a particularly practical chapter for the primary care clinician in a busy office-based practice. The book concludes with an excellent bibliography and index. As might be expected, the diversity of authorship results in a variety of sometimes conflicting viewpoints; however this is not distracting and only tends to add breadth to this impressive effort. This extremely successful effort provides the reader with abroad but detailed overview of the addictions field. It possesses several significant strengths over similar texts in its emphasis on practical clinical applications. It should prove to be highly popular as a teaching text as well as a valuable reference for clinicians in the field.
From The Critics
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, DO (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of this excellent textbook of addiction psychiatry. It updates and details the tremendous advances in the understanding of the neurobiology, genetics, cognitive neuroscience, and family factors in the pathophysiology and etiology of substance use disorders. Written and edited by a group of nationally recognized experts in addiction psychiatry, this book is a welcome addition to the psychiatric literature.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the editors, is to address the great and costly social and medical problems associated with substance use disorders. The editors hope that readers will find in the book the tools useful in helping their addicted patients. The editors have indeed produced in this third edition a user-friendly recipe for bringing clinicians up-to-date.
Audience: The intended audience includes general psychiatrists, addictive psychiatrist, and trainees in addiction psychiatry fellowship programs. The book would also be useful for psychiatry residents, particularly during their addiction psychiatry rotations.
Features: The chapters that were in the second edition have been updated and many chapters have been added, bringing the total to 28 chapters in five parts. Topics covered include neurobiology, historical context, psychological evaluation, laboratory testing, alcohol, tobacco, opioids, and the other commonly abused substances. Special populations are addressed with chapters on comorbidity, pathological gambling, minority populations, the workplace, forensic aspects, pain, elderly patients, HIV/AIDS, and women. The last part of the book reviews various treatment modalities including psychodynamic therapy, cognitive therapy, group/self-help/and network therapy, family therapy, adolescent substance abuse, psychopharmacological interventions, dialectical behavioral therapy, and a particularly helpful chapter on matching treatment to substance abusers. Each chapter ends with timely and useful references and the index section was helpful.
Assessment: This is a comprehensive update of this excellent textbook of addiction psychiatry. All psychiatrists need to be knowledgeable in this area and reading this book would be a step in that direction.
Booknews
Beginning with an overview that places addictions in historical context, this textbook goes on to describe the consequences of addiction to each drug, diagnostic issues, and problems with special populations; and then reviews the differential therapeutics of addiction treatment with descriptions of each modality.
