9780123983381: Interventions for Addiction: Comprehensive Addictive Behaviors and Disorders, Volume 3

Interventions for Addiction examines a wide range of responses to addictive behaviors, including psychosocial treatments, pharmacological treatments, provision of health care to addicted individuals, prevention, and public policy issues. Its focus is on the practical application of information covered in the two previous volumes of the series, Comprehensive Addictive Behaviors and Disorders.

Readers will find information on treatments beyond commonly used methods, including Internet-based and faith-based therapies, and criminal justice interventions. The volume features extensive coverage of pharmacotherapies for each of the major drugs of abuse-including disulfiram, buprenorphine, naltrexone, and others-as well as for behavioral addictions. In considering public policy, the book examines legislative efforts, price controls, and limits on advertising, as well as World Health Organization (WHO) efforts.

Interventions for Addiction is one of three volumes comprising the 2,500-page series, Comprehensive Addictive Behaviors and Disorders. This series provides the most complete collection of current knowledge on addictive behaviors and disorders to date. In short, it is the definitive reference work on addictions.

  • Includes descriptions of both psychosocial and pharmacological treatments.
  • Addresses health services research on attempts to increase the use of evidence-based treatments in routine clinical practice.
  • Covers attempts to slow the progress of addictions through prevention programs and changes in public policy.

Review:

"...a comprehensive look at the wide variety of evidence-based treatments for addictions, including psychosocial intervention, pharmacological treatments, prevention strategies, public policy, and the provision of healthcare to this population...This is an exceptional, comprehensive reference for all involved in the field." Rating: 5 Stars--Doody.com, January 17, 2014 "Miller...and his contributors aim to integrate a diversity of findings into a meaningful conceptualization of all aspects of use and abuse. There are 96 chapters divided into four parts: treatment; medications to treat addictions; applying addiction science to clinical practice; public policy; and alcohol and drug prevention, adolescents and college students, gambling. Targeted for clinicians, researchers, professors, and policy makers, this comprehensive book is also a valuable aid for students from undergraduate to postdoc."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
