About this book
Reviews

"Many who promote a demand-reduction philosophy for solving the nation's substance abuse policy cite a disparity between the funding levels for interdiction versus those for demand-reduction activities. In part, the disparity can be attributed to an ability of the interdiction side to quantify its needs and its successes. Epidemiology may be the best tool at our disposal for decreasing this level-of-resource disparity by leading the field toward more quantification- and evidence-based interventions. Sloboda's work may help to accomplish this very worthy goal."

James M. Topolski, Ph.D., from PsycCritiques, April 12, 2006, Vol. 51 (15), Article 9
