Addictions: A Guidebook for Professionals
Barbara S. McCrady, Elizabeth E. Epstein
Here, in one volume, is both practical and scholarly information for alcohol
and drug abuse specialists, primary care providers, policy-makers, and others
involved in programs that are geared to help those who abuse or are dependent
on alcohol and other drugs. Addictions is organized into seven parts that range
from the prevalence of certain addictions to their identification and treatment
to the social effects of these addictions. Editors Barbara McCrady and Elizabeth
Epstein present information that is appropriate for graduate courses in addictions
or for preparation for the American Psychological Association's proficiency exam.
In fact, this volume contains almost all of the basic information a professional
or graduate student needs to learn about or treat substance abuse.
