Review:

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

"The commentaries at the end of each section are pertinent and,at times, thought provoking. This book would be best appreciated byindividuals with knowledge in this area, but will be educationalfor anyone interested in this topic." (Doody's, 21 October2011)
