Editorial Reviews

Canadian Journal of Hospital Pharmacy
...This book represents a major effort in the field of Drug and Alcohol Addiction. It not only covers a wide variety of topics but has put together an impressive overall view of the field done by leading researchers and clinicians obviously selected by their ability to integrate research and clinical practice, to summarize information, and to provide a critical look at their work and that of others. The book also achieves the objective of being comprehensive in approach and content to a wide variety of readers. Its organization, style, and language are clear and concise, and the pertinent facts are clearly presented. The editor is correct when stating that no other single book in this field has this depth and breadth of information. This is a resource that no individual with an interest in drug abuse should ignore.
