About this book

This book is written for any clinician who encounters substance abuse in a patient and wonders what to do. Experts from a cross-section of specialties and health professions provide up-to-date, evidence-based guidance on how non-expert clinicians can recognize, understand, and approach the management of substance abuse in their patients. They detail the range of treatments available and whether and how they work. The central importance of using a carefully selected multimodal approach that is tailored to the individual patient is emphasized throughout and illustrated in case scenarios from actual clinical practice.

Reviews

“This is a comprehensive review of the management of patients with substance abuse problems geared for the nonexpert. It is a guide for everyday clinicians who are most likely to encounter these patients. … The audience is all healthcare providers who encounter individuals in their practice with substance abuse problems. It also can be an excellent resource for residents, medical students, nurses, and other healthcare providers.” (Michael Easton, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2015)
