Overview

In The Integration of Pharmacological and Nonpharmacological Treatments in Drug/Alcohol Addictions, you?ll discover how traditional “clean and sober” recovery methods are being combined with “drug solutions” to successfully treat patients with addictive disorders. Up-to-date and filled with practical research, its integrated approach shows how you can significantly reduce morbidity and mortality due to long-term addiction.

Providing the groundwork for future developments in integrated forms of treatment, The Integrations of Pharmacological and Nonpharmacological Treatments in Drug/Alcohol Addictions combines research and practice to give you the evaluative tools you need to move from an “all or nothing” approach to a level of balanced tolerance between “good and bad” when you and your patients are searching for a successful regimen of treatment. The in-depth studies will guide you in carefully rethinking the basic tenets of addictive disorder treatment. Specifically, you?ll read about:

  • the integration of generalized vulnerability to drug and alcohol addiction
  • psychopharmacotherapy for addictive and comorbid disorders
  • psychosocial perspectives on integrating treatments for methamphetamine addiction
  • integrating pharmacotherapies in existing alcoholic treatment programs
  • the integrations of research in pharmacotherapy

    Contemporary research has taught us some humbling lessons--namely, that addictive disorders are complex biopsychosocial entities and not simple “either/or” cases. The Integration of Pharmacological and Nonpharmacological Treatments in Drug/Alcohol Addictions explores the newly emerging middle ground in addictive disorder treatment. You?ll find that it gives you sharper definitions of abstinence, recovery, and therapy and helps you best serve those patients whose needs lie somewhere between prescription and detoxification.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Easton, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book reviews some of the changes occurring in addiction medicine regarding the area of craving/replacement pharmacotherapy and its integration into current psychosocial treatments.
Purpose: The purpose is to review recent information regarding the development of newer medications used in addictive disorders and how these should be optimally administered in addiction treatment programs.
Audience: The book is written for the average clinician working in the addiction field. It is easily understood by individuals of all educational and clinical levels. The editor and contributors are experts in this field. The editor is extensively published in this area and adds a few of his own unique insights in a number of the chapters.
Features: The book falls short of accomplishing what the title promises. It consists of a number of review articles that cover newer medications used in addictions, a chapter that reviews over the biological/genetic vulnerability to addictions, and two chapters devoted to the treatment of dual diagnosis patients. There are two chapters that are noteworthy. The first is a review of the European approach to integrating addiction pharmacotherapy with psychosocial treatments. The second is a brief review of all pharmacological agents under investigation for the treatment of addictive disorders. The text has adequate illustrations and charts. The references are relevant and up to date.
Assessment: Overall, this text is limited and very general. It is not original in its topic matter and most of this information can be found in a number of other sources.
