Overview

The past decade has seen a remarkable degree of public and professional acceptance of cigarette smoking as the most widespread and devastating form of drug dependence. This attitude is in sharp contrast to the earlier prevailing atmosphere of disinterest, ignorance, and professional disdain. These changes created an obvious need for a text for clinicians working with nicotine dependent patients. This book is designed especially for practicing physicians in all specialties, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and counselors. It gives an opportunity to become familiar with the most common methods of treatment. Readers will be able to pull practical treatment methods from the text and apply them in their own practices.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A fine textbook for psychologists, social workers, nurses, counselors and physicians, providing coverage of etiology (including Slaby's history of usage), and treatment of the addiction (behavioral, gum, acupuncture, clonidine . . .). Unfortunately no index is provided. A vastly important book. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
