Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Easton, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This condensed version of the American Society of Addiction Medicine's reference, Principles of Addiction Medicine, 4th edition, Ries et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2009) is intended as a quick reference on all areas of addiction medicine.
Purpose: This book is designed to present key clinical points from each chapter of the main textbook in an easy readable format. The goal is to distill the essential knowledge that constitutes the core of addiction medicine and, in part, to make this information accessible to primary care physicians and other healthcare professionals who are not addiction specialists.
Audience: Although condensed, this is a thorough overview of all the areas of addiction medicine. It is meant to provide clinically relevant information for healthcare professionals not in the addiction field, and it is also an excellent book for residents, nurses, and clinicians in the addiction field to review the pertinent information on treating these diseases.
Features: It is organized into 14 sections, as is the main textbook, and each chapter is a summary of the more detailed information presented in its companion chapter in the larger reference. The first section covers basic science and is followed by sections reviewing pharmacology diagnosis, interventions (including special populations, emergency rooms, geriatrics, and laboratory testing), management of withdrawal, psychosocial treatments, behavioral treatments, pharmacological treatments, and self-help groups. The book then looks at special situations and populations such as medical problems caused by alcohol and drugs, co-occurring psychiatric disorders, addiction and pain, children and adolescents, and ends with ethical, legal and liability issues in addictions practice.
Assessment: This book provides an efficient overview of material that can be examined in greater detail if so desired by referring to the main textbook.
