Book Review

The American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Substance Abuse Treatment, 2nd ed

Stephen L. Dilts

Published: October 31, 2000

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

This edition is greatly expanded to present a broad overview of substance abuse treatment aimed at "clinicians in practice and researchers concerned with addiction, as well as trainees in psychiatry, general medicine, and other health professions". New chapter topics include mechanisms underlying addictions, neurobiology, epidemiology, genetics, psychology, prevention, cross-cultural issues, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, and diagnostic procedures, among others; in other words, the book has become a general text about most aspects of substance abuse, not just treatment.
