Study Guide to Substance Abuse Treatment is a question-and-answer companion that allows you to evaluate your mastery of the subject matter as you progress through The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Treatment, Third Edition. The Study Guide is made up of 300 questions divided into 50 individual quizzes of 5-10 questions each that correspond to chapters in the Textbook. Questions are followed by an Answer Guide that references relevant text (including the page number) in the Textbook to allow quick access to needed information. Each answer is accompanied by a discussion that not only addresses the correct response but also explains why other responses are not correct. The Study Guide's companion, the third edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Treatment reflects the still-growing commitment of psychiatry to addressing the problem of substance abuse. Substance abuse is the nation's number one health problem, and also a major health problem worldwide.
In the United States, less than half of those in need of treatment actually receive itAboth due to the reluctance of insurance companies to cover this treatment and of patients to seek it. Fully updated, this invaluable and comprehensive textbook offers a depth and scope unparalleled in the literature. The 94 distinguished contributors discuss the latest basic and clinical perspectives on the nature and neurobiology of addiction, epidemiology of drug dependence, genetics, principles of operant conditioning and social learning, cross-cultural aspects, overview of available treatments and treatment and detoxification of specific drugs of abuse, issues related to special populations, and special topics such as diagnostic testing and medical education.
