About this book

Eating disorders, addictions, and substance use disorders are each challenging in their own right, but they also commonly co-occur, causing major challenges for clinicians. This book presents cutting-edge research on the overlap of these complex disorders and reviews integrative assessment strategies and treatment approaches, including enhanced cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, abstinence approaches, motivational enhancement, mindfulness meditation, and pharmacotherapy. The issue of whether eating-disordered behaviors such as dieting, binge eating, and excessive exercise are merely other forms of addictive behavior is examined. The authors argue both for and against the concept of food addiction in research, clinical treatment, and public policy. The book will be of interest to psychiatrists, addiction medicine physicians, mental health/substance abuse clinicians, dieticians, researchers, and those affected by the disorders.

Reviews

“This unique textbook addressing the evaluation and treatment of co-occurring eating disorders and substance use disorders/addictions is a valuable reference for those who treat patients with these diagnoses. … To sum up, this textbook is a useful resource for information on many aspects of the co-occurrence of eating disorders and substance use disorders/addictions.” (Katherine A. Halmi, Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, Vol. 77 (3), February, 2016)

“Eating Disorders, Addictions, and Substance Use Disorders is well-organized, comprehensive, well-written, and valuable. It informs clinicians about the overlap between SUD and ED as well as issues surrounding the treatment of comorbid ED and SUD. Throughout the book, the authors point to important future research directions. This text will serve as a valuable reference to ED and SUD researchers as well as healthcare professionals who care for patients with comorbid ED and SUD.” (Margarita Sala, Eating Disorders, The Journal of Treatment & Prevention, February, 2015)

“This is a comprehensive review of the most recent research and clinical information about the relationship between the frequently co-occurring conditions of addictions and eating disorders. … The book is designed to provide clinically relevant information for healthcare professionals, both seasoned and just entering into these fields.” (Michael Easton, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2014)
