Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

New Treatments for Chemical Addictions, edited by Elinore F. McCance-Katz and Thomas R. Kosten, is a book that is part of a series of monographs that together constitute the 1998 annual Review of Psychiatry. As described by the editors of this series, John M. Oldham, M.D., and Michelle B. Riba, M.D., the objective of this and other monographs is "to provide useful and current clinical information linked to new research evidence." In New Treatments for Chemical Addictions, the editors and authors of the individual chapters have all accomplished that challenging goal.
