Abstract:

Now in a revised and expanded third edition, this authoritative clinical reference and text presents state-of-the-science knowledge about all aspects of addictive disorders and their treatment. Leading researchers and practitioners describe best practices in assessment and diagnosis and provide the latest information on working with users of specific substances ... Divided into five parts, the book begins by describing the scientific foundations and historical background of addictions treatment. Current procedures for psychological evaluation and laboratory testing are then outlined. Subsequent sections provide vital substance specific information and examine issues in working with particular populations, including polysubstance abusers, culturally diverse patients, women, and older adults. Next, widely used psychosocial and pharmacological treatment approaches are thoroughly reviewed. Throughout, attention is given to the importance of tailoring interventions to each patient's needs while delivering compassionate, evidence-based care. Offering expanded coverage of comorbidity and dual diagnosis, the third edition contains entirely new chapters on the neuroscientific basis of addiction, addiction to gambling and to pain medications, and substance abuse in the workplace, as well as a chapter on dialectical behavior therapy. Timely and comprehensive, this volume belongs on the desks of practitioners, graduate students, and residents in a range of disciplines, including psychiatry, clinical psychology, social work, substance abuse counseling, and allied health fields. It serves as a core text for courses in addiction psychiatry and substance abuse counseling--Publisher.
