Description

This is a comprehensive yet practical guide for professionals in mental health, covering all addictive substances. The volume is organized into six parts: pharmacology, definitions and diagnosis, etioogy, maintenance, assessment and treatment planning, treatments, and issues in specific populations. In the APA's recently created Division 50, the Division of the Psychology of Addictive Behaviors, McCrady played a key role in a task force which reviewed and established guidelines for the continuing education of clinicians in this new subspecialty.show more

Review quote

"Here, under one cover is the information needed by alcohol and drug abuse specialists, primary care providers, policymakers, and others who are involved in programs which are geared to help those who abuse or are dependent on alcohol and other drugs to become informed about these problems, including the far-reaching effects of these substances on individuals and on society. I commend both Dr. McCrady and Dr. Epstein for their efforts in presenting such a wealth of material in a clear and concise manner appropriate for a variety of audiences and for having pulled together the talented group of subject-matter experts represented in this book."--Enoch Gordis, M.D., Director, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism"This book represents a comprehensive sourcebook for diverse practitioners within the field of addictions. The editors succeed admirably in their goal of integrating research findings and clinical data in a field notable for a paucity of such integrative approaches." -- Doody's "Here, under one cover is the information needed by alcohol and drug abuse specialists, primary care providers, policymakers, and others who are involved in programs which are geared to help those who abuse or are dependent on alcohol and other drugs to become informed about these problems, including the far-reaching effects of these substances on individuals and on society.
