Substance abuse disorders are among the most prevalent psychiatric disorders and are frequently comorbid with other psychiatric and health conditions and accompanied by social problems; however, they remain under-recognized and under-treated. Many physicians and mental health practitioners receive little-to-no training in the identification and treatment of these disorders.  Approaches to their prevention include some of the major success stories in modern public health as well as some of the deepest controversies in public life. This new title in the WPA series Evidence and Experience in Psychiatry informs psychiatrists and a wide range of professional groups from health and social services about these disorders and their treatment and control. 

'Highly Commended' in the Psychiatry section of the 2012 BMA Book Awards

Review:

"This book provides a comprehensive review of substance abuse disorders by many of the world's leading experst in the field, and its contributors have a truly broad international representation. The chapters are clearly and authoritatively written, and each section is followed by commentaries that add the experience of experts to the evidence presented in the chapters." (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, April 2012)

"The commentaries at the end of each section are pertinent and, at times, thought provoking. This book would be best appreciated by individuals with knowledge in this area, but will be educational for anyone interested in this topic." (Doody's, 21 October 2011)

"In this valuable contribution to the field, Ghodse (International Centre for Drug Policy, U. of London, UK) introduces a dozen chapters by international experts that address tobacco, alcohol, and other legal and illicit drugs." (Booknews, 1 April 2011)
