Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Easton, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book provides a comprehensive and detailed review of pharmacotherapies in addictive disorders. It highlights various approaches to detoxification of chemically dependent patients along with recent advances in the pharmacological approaches to relapse prevention in addictive disorders. The book also provides a comprehensive review of these issues in specific clinical populations with special needs (i.e., surgical patients, pain patients, psychiatric patients, emergency room setting, pregnancy etc.).
Purpose: It reviews the various aspects of pharmacotherapy in addictive disorders. It pulls together a wide variety of pertinent, relevant, and recent information in this area. It is one of the first books to be devoted solely to this area of addiction medicine.
Audience: It appears to be geared toward MD clinicians, specifically those in the addiction field. But, it will be invaluable to all clinicians who deal with a substance abuse population in their practice. The text may also be useful to non-MD addiction clinicians with an interest in more medical and technical aspects of addiction.
Features: This book is extremely comprehensive and up-to-date, and it contains pertinent information regarding many areas of addiction medicine. The text is somewhat underillustrated, but the illustrations provided are relevant and helpful. The references are voluminous, up-to-date, and relevant.
Assessment: This is a very useful book that brings together a variety of up-to-date information. It is one of just a few books in this area of which I am aware and fills a clear void. It will be relevant to all clinicians who work with a substance abusing clinical population.

Although the dominant theme of this volume is pharmacological therapies for drug and alcohol addictions, a major aim is to show that it is possible to integrate pharmacological and nonpharmacological treatments for the benefit of the patient. First, general aspects of biology, pharmacology, and behavior pertaining to addictive disorders are discussed, and then specific pharmacological approaches to drug and alcohol addictions are presented. The information is primarily directed to clinicians and researchers interested in addictive disorders. The basic concepts and clinical guidelines are formulated for application to clinical and research populations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
