Editorial Reviews

Review

An impressive and imperative read for students and professionals in the addiction field... Highly recommended.

(Choice)

Addiction Treatment provides a broad overview of where the field seems to be heading and achieves its goal by provoking debate over the best way to get there.

(JAMA)

The editors do an excellent job of putting together a collection of essays from leading experts in the field of addiction. The provocative essays and the way that the chapters are organized creates a book that is easy to read and will certainly stimulate thought and further discussion about what is possible for addiction treatment in the twenty-first century... An outstanding resource and is appropriate for students, health care professionals, researchers, policy makers, and laypersons interested in addiction science and health care policy.

(Mary E. Cooley Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco Newsletter)

The book does provoke thought and causes readers to contemplate a number of relevant questions. It will be most useful to those with a good understanding of both the science and public health policies surrounding the treatment for addictions.

(Doody's Review Service)

A valuable contribution to the literature.

(Christian Perring Metapsychology)

Addiction and Art may be the most important art book written this year.

(Bob Dugan Big Think)

Well written, solidly grounded in science, and thought provoking. The essays provide a kaleidoscopic view of the state of the art of addiction treatment in the context of social, political, and economic limitations.

(Susan M. Stine, M.D., Ph.D., Wayne State University School of Medicine, coeditor of New Treatments for Opiate Dependence)

This book covered much ground for no bigger than it is. The chapters are relatively short, but good summaries. A variety of perspectives are contained, and I particularly liked the artwork of addicts in recovery. The introduction by C. Everett Koop is worth the purchase price alone.
