From our regular book review column.

The diagnosis and subsequent treatment of individuals with substance use disorders can be a very challenging experience for any clinician. This situation can be especially difficult in the case of clinicians who are working in primary care and mental health and who may lack experience and training in the field of addiction. This text by Edgar P. Nace and Joyce A Tinsley, Patients With Substance Abuse Problems: Effective Identification, Diagnosis, and Treatment, can provide help, hope, and even a sense of gratification to clinicians working with this patient population by providing them with a concise, clearly written, and practical condensation of the essential elements involved in the care of addiction patients.
