Abstract:

"This handbook addresses many of the wide-ranging consequences of addiction. Without a clear understanding of addiction, researchers will find it very difficult to reach consensus regarding addiction prevalence rates, etiology, and the necessary and sufficient causes that stimulate recovery. Also, without a precise understanding of addiction, clinicians will encounter diagnostic and treatment matching difficulties, and satisfactory treatment outcome measures will remain lacking. Without such an understanding, public policymakers will find it difficult to establish regulatory legislation, determine treatment need, establish health care systems, and promulgate new guidelines for health care reimbursement. To begin to remedy this situation, this handbook brings together some of the top minds in the field of addiction studies to discuss and debate the nature of addiction. This first volume focuses on (1) the background and history of addiction; (2) the distal and proximal influences of addiction; and (3) the expressions of addiction"--Book.
