Synopsis: The definitive book about the impact of prescription painkiller abuse on individuals, communities, and society by one of America's leading experts on addiction.

In recent years, the media has inundated us with coverage of the increasing abuse of prescription painkillers. Prescription Painkillers, the third book in Hazelden's Library of Addictive Drugs series, offers current, comprehensive information on the history, social impact, pharmacology, and addiction treatment for commonly abused, highly addictive opiate prescription painkillers such as Oxycontin®, Vicodin, Percocet, and Darvocet.Marvin D. Seppala, MD, provides context for understanding the current drug abuse problem by tracing the history of opioids and the varying patterns of use over time. He then offers an in-depth study of controversial issues surrounding these readily available drugs, including over-prescription by physicians and adolescent abuse. Also included is a straightforward look at the leading treatment protocols based on current research.

About the Author: Marvin D. Seppala, MD, is chief medical officer at Hazelden, and serves as adjunct assistant professor at the Hazelden Graduate School of Addiction Studies. Dr. Seppala served as a board member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) for several years and is a national expert on addiction treatment. He has appeared as a guest on the CBS-TV "Early Show" and on National Public Radio. He has been quoted in the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, Newsweek, and the Wall Street Journal.Dr. Seppala is the author of Clinician's Guide to the Twelve Step Principles and coauthor of When Painkillers Become Dangerous and Pain-Free Living for Drug-Free People.
