Psychopharmacology is a swiftly evolving field, with new drugs coming onto the market and existing drugs being approved for new treatments at a rapid pace. This new edition of Clinical Manual of Addiction Psychopharmacology offers current information on the pharmacology of the major classes of drugs related to addiction, as well as the latest pharmacological treatment of dependence on these drugs. Advances have been made in the treatment of opioid, alcohol, and tobacco dependence, in particular, and these chapters have been thoroughly updated. In addition, the manual reflects recent research findings and evidence-based perspectives on the pharmacological actions of other drugs of abuse. The editors have adopted a therapeutic focus that will prove indispensable to clinicians challenged to identify effective pharmacotherapy treatments for their patients with substance use disorders. For example, the importance of identifying co-occurring medical problems and psychiatric syndromes is emphasized to avoid undermining the therapeutic effects of treatment, and the efficacy of combining nonpharmacological treatment, such as psychotherapy, is also explored. Prescribing clinicians, social workers, and other mental health practitioners will find Clinical Manual of Addiction Psychopharmacology invaluable in their work with individuals with substance-related disorders.

Review:

Kranzler, Ciraulo and Zindel s incredibly thorough, yet compact clinical manual of addiction pharmacology is a must for physicians and other providers who treat individuals with addictive disorders. Covering a wide range of topics from alcohol use disorders, prescription drug abuse, and synthetic cannabinoid agonists, to name a few, the guide is clearly written and well organized. The manual provides clear synopses of scientific studies for pharmacologic treatments, including the latest on pharmacogenetics, while offering practical advice for clinicians. This manual would serve as an excellent teaching tool for residents in advanced training for Addiction Psychiatry and/or American Board of Addiction Medicine fellowships. Overall, this manual offers much to both experienced professionals and those beginning a career in addiction medicine. --Ismene L. Petrakis M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine; Chief of Psychiatry, VA Connecticut Healthcare System; Director, Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship, Yale School of Medicine

Book Description American Psychiatric Association Publishing, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Clinical Manual of Addiction Psychopharmacology is a comprehensive guide to the pharmacology of drugs of abuse and the medications used to treat dependence on those substances. This new, second edition provides a thorough update on a broad range of addictive substances, along with enhanced coverage in areas where significant advances have been made since publication of the first edition. Clinicians, including psychiatrists, psychiatric residents and fellows, and other mental health practitioners who encounter individuals with substance-related disorders in the course of their clinical work, will find the manual to be well-organized, exhaustively referenced, and current.The book is structured for ease of use and completeness of coverage, with an abundance of beneficial features:  Material is presented in a systematic fashion, addressing epidemiology, pharmacology of the abused substance (including pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics), psychopharmacological treatments, and issues of dependence, tolerance, withdrawal, and abstinence. Both basic science and clinical dimensions are addressed, and these different perspectives, including pharmacotherapy and the psychosocial aspects of treatment, are integrated to allow clinicians a more holistic and effective treatment approach. Coverage of the pharmacology of drugs of abuse is thorough and reflects the latest research findings, providing a necessary background for understanding the clinical effects and treatment of dependence on these substances. Coverage of pharmacotherapy for dependence on these drugs is equally comprehensive, with meticulously detailed findings and evidence-based recommendations for the clinical care of patients dependent on a variety of substances. Tables are used strategically to present complex information in a logical and accessible way; for example, the table on management of alcohol withdrawal syndrome includes detailed information on the symptom-triggered approach, fixed dose schedules, and delirium in a condensed, yet easy-to-understand format. The book is well written and edited for clarity and accuracy by editors and contributors at the forefront of the psychopharmacology of addiction. As new drugs come into the market and old drugs find new applications, clinicians must stay current to provide the best care. Clinical Manual of Addiction Psychopharmacology helps them to do just that, offering both sound science and clinical wisdom to meet the complex challenges of treating individuals with substance-related disorders.
