"Carefully selected experts within their respective domains have put together an astonishingly comprehensive reference work, well edited and accessible....This work has truly become a classic in the field!"--Leo Goldberger, PhD, Department of Psychology (Emeritus), New York University"Clinical Textbook of Addictive Disorders, Third Edition, nicely depicts the many recent advances that have taken place in the addictions field. The latest neuroscientific knowledge--including neurobiological mechanisms, pathophysiology, and genetics--is well presented, as are current evidence-based intervention methods. The authors assembled here represent the top experts in their respective areas. This new edition is an ideal tool for all mental health practitioners and trainees involved in diagnosing and treating persons with addictive disorders, as well as for researchers and educators."--Pedro Ruiz, MD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Texas Medical School at Houston
"This is more than just an update of the classic reference. In this edition, addictive disorders have been placed in a context reflecting their expression in the real world. Thus, polydrug use, psychiatric comorbidity, and 'behavioral addictions,' such as pathological gambling, are now emphasized. Moreover, issues related to addiction across populations (e.g., ethnic groups, gender, and children/adolescents) are now addressed. The result is a volume that will be useful for professionals in social services, health care, and public policy, as well as advanced students training for these professions."--Thomas H. Brandon, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of South Florida, and Tobacco Research and Intervention Program, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute
"I have been looking forward to the new edition of this useful teaching tool. Beyond covering the basics that readers expect from an addiction text--pharmacology of specific substances and major treatment modalities--the editors also address a breadth of other topics, including polydrug use, comorbidities, HIV/AIDS, and the needs of women and older adults. The comprehensiveness and readability of this text promise to make it a favorite among clinical educators, medical students, and residents."--Joyce A. Tinsley, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Connecticut; Executive Director, American Association of Directors of Psychiatric Residency Training
"An essential clinical resource, this revised and updated volume features comprehensive yet focused coverage of the most important and innovative topics in the ever-changing field of substance abuse treatment. Written by noted practitioners and researchers, chapters range from the pharmacology of psychoactive drugs to the latest psychosocial interventions and medications shown to be effective in treating patients with alcohol and drug problems. This is an ideal text for providing students with a broad overview of the field as well as specific guidelines for clinical practice. Practitioners will find it a handy reference for state-of the-art conceptualizations and treatments for the full range of substance use disorders."--Arnold M. Washton, PhD, private practice, New York, New York, and Princeton, New Jersey
